Travelin’ Shroom

by Mary E. Lowd

Mushroom man
In a mushroom city
Making plans
For a foray
Into the wilds
Away from the mycelial
Network she knows
By heart

(Mushrooms don’t
Have hearts)

Backpack & sleeping mat
On her back
Ready for a trip
—a mushroom trip—
Into the wild unknown

Her first time ever
Being alone
