unfurling

i’m a kapusta fan jennifer says
at the wigilia table
where the places are set with the
fancy-folded christmas tree shaped napkins

the cool air on my face
as i brisk-walk the ponds and
bendy roads
of regal manors east
_______
the curled-in brown of the resurrection plant
unfurling and turning green
in a bowl of shallow water
