Pocket Seeds

I keep snapdragon seeds in my left pocket.
My own garden doesn’t need them;
its blue violets and ivy flourish.
Those at my side are my secret stash.
I plant them in gardens miles from mine,
or slip them to slender busboys
who lean in close to clear my plate.
I fling them with force over lonely fields,
but they don’t need to be empty
