The tree has entered my hands,
The sap has ascended my arms,
The tree has grown in my breast -
The branches grow out of me, like arms.

from Ezra Pound – A Girl on Rap Genius


The poet is explaining how this girl is special and different from others. No other girls have this specific undergrowth grown on her body.
