Growing Potatoes on Mars

Powerful, fiery
and dramatic,
the red planet
is a devil
of a place
to grow potatoes.
Mind you,
they always
take root
in my kitchen cupboard…

Kim M. Russell, 2017

This poem was inspired by an article I read on Science Alert – I was just waiting for the right prompt to come along to write it.
