I am Kudzu

Location

the flower

the vine.

tubers and seeds,

veins and leaves;

I am not just the sum of my parts

 

I am Kudzu,

an unstoppable force

and untamable flower

constantly growing and

overflowing

 

I am Kudzu

Invasive, overgrown?

Destructive?

No.

 

No, I am Kudzu.

Climbing the garden walls

I cannot be destroyed

will not be broken

will live and die

 

And live again.
