A scientific
Would be to question

How many species
Entangled themselves
To yield this green splotch,

Spongy and springy—
Is this lichen, moss,
Both? Is the lichen

Two or three species
In symbiotic

And really what is
True symbiosis?
Whatever it is,

It’s plush to the touch
After the snowmelt,
However many

Confusions you bring,
However many
Symbiotic lives—

Plus mutualists,
Clones, and parasites—
You are, touching this.
