Basil In Magritte's Pipe - Poem by Alexandre Nodopaka

Thanks for growing this leafy jewel!
I raise one myself in a gold leafed
planter on the ledge of my

bright kitchen window.
You speak of its 7 wonders but I
wonder if there's an 8th marvel

and what magic can be done with
their dried leaves in a piped dream.
I start stuffing mine with grass

hoping for a hazy miracle. Yes, it's
not cannabalis in a pipe but weed in
a pipe is pasture in a whistle.
