Beets are great because of their density
and act like neutron stars, full of soot and earth.
They are feminine, dyeing, infecting, seducing
others with their hypnotic juice and overwhelming hue,
but subtly reject any habitual dependencies.
They skin easily, hide their bruises, are elitist,
but can be plated and pickled and broiled like the rest.
