i made a window in the script for this

the peas are short vines
in rows
you crawl between
with your sister
the ring leader
and the cousins
from up the street

we can reach in
and pick them
eat them pods even
or getting at the sweet nuts
with sore thumbs
and our tongues
as long as the scavengers
stay hidden from
the square eyed
kitchen window
