Ash Wednesday! Plantdemic
Written By: Ash Catcher
Some things I have acquired, some things I have found.
Over the course of just one year and some all housebound.
Plants have suddenly overrun my life.
Always temperamental, over watering, over sharing like a work wife.
There is no cause for alarm, it's just the amazon in my bedroom.
I am terrified of what the future will bring, still mourning the death of my heirlooms.
They didn’t work out this year. I guess that is okay.
Feeling confused all the time for an ashtray.
Always there but still pending.
Always weary of tricks and lending.
Trials and errors, plants and pants on fire.
Something cryptic insert here, looking for the “all clear”
I feel like with plants they can always out grow.
The pots that hold them, they’re cheaper at Lowes.
All the things that I have learned about keeping these green babies
Makes me long for the 80’s.
A decade I was never a part of but should have been.
But instead I had to deal with drinking too much gin.
Plant based basket case.
Putting on a brave poker face.
Too many plants we now have a problem.
Somewhere way past appreciation and way too much pollen.
Living things, plants, and me.
Everything good comes in threes.
Plantdemic planned or purchased?
Will something hidden ever surface?
Green with envy, what is another thing.
Anything to get me past winter, autumn, spring.
