May 24th, 2010

you plant these things and then you walk away
and they grow and they grow and they grow

and they take things over
for instance the garden bed
and then the lawn
they come inside the house
they fill up the spaces in your walls
in your head
in your heart

these things become weeds
these things threaten to choke you out
these things you plant to be pretty
so soon turn against you
in the ugliest way
