Go to the woods in late spring.
Follow your nose
and stand admist that great, green carpet.
Take into your lungs
and nose and mouth
that cloud of cleansing comfort.

Feel the garlic haze
so strong it might well sting your eyes
and smile
because it means you are alive.

(Pick a half a dozen leaves.
Take them home.
Eat what is offered you
.)
