I live above a couple
farming bamboo in their flat,
I pray they’re not successful.

Rapidly growing aggressive members of
tribe Bambuseae are known to impale from below.

The fastest can grow nearly three feet a day
(that’s 90 cm for you smarter people).

My bed is low, my mattress is thin,
the odds – they shift daily.
