The Impossible Year 2017

Has not finished without me.
Papa, Grandpa, and Daughter
Sat at the kitchen table
Cleaning avocado pits,

Poking each with four toothpicks 
And suspending them
In water glasses.

Grandpa read the instructions
For growing avocados,
And Daughter read the cautions
That the trees might not bear fruit.

Papa scrutinized the roots
Of plants already started.
Roots come after origins.
