Fully Colored Green
Suzanne Ondrus

Vines intertwine
around my veins and
in my joints flowers bloom.

You are deep
in my vitals—
a special mineral
polishing leaves
and glistening berries.

You twist tendrils into
my tiniest cells,
clearing dead matter.
I expand and expand;
the oxygen overtakes me.

Look I am rising!
