Plants/ Chance Dibben

 

The F U scrawled on my car’s hood

has gotten deeper

 

my teeth can hold anything

but a smile

 

They’ve stopped putting fortunes

in the cookies

I can’t afford the tax

on my buried treasure

 

According to most KPIs

I’m doing great

 

The study says plants

can form memories

 

I hope they remember me

as I mow them down

 

and let them grow

wild and hot again
