Asparagus. How does roasted asparagus mimic lines of poetry?

By form, asparagus is linear. Line-like. Roasted asparagus is sweet and soft -- unexpected. Poetry frequents the unexpected even when it looks mild on the page.

  1. and following the unexpected directions
    given by an ancient ruin

    it's still not clear how the tunnel
    stacks up, how the sand is held back

    how the dunes they once sat upon
    could hold the weight of the sea
