I am… a mushroom
On whom the dew of heaven drops now and then.
Ugh. All this rain and humidity-
we have mushrooms
(and toadstools? Are they the same or different?)
popping up all over.
Growing alongside our driveway-
this specimen is about five inches high and eight inches across.
That doesn’t seem so amazing when you read it,
but trust me, it is an enormous mushroom.
Growing out of the sides of trees.
like it belongs there.
This is the most toxic looking thing I have ever seen.
I will not be eating it.
(Even though I would like to be taller.)
