It began with a stain
a fluorescent orange blot
about quarter size
I scrubbed and scrubbed
finally ground it down
the next day:
bigger than ever
brighter in color
covered with blue caps
I thought they were pretty
until they exploded in my face
every place the spores landed
they started to grow.

We in our orange majesty
sail through space
dispense our largess
at every port of call
