Pretty Words

I'm cactus in the dead of winter

A lemon tree in Washington State

An existence fragile as parchment paper 

falling into the seat two seconds late 

 

Just a millimeter above the water

A degree above the freeze 

pretty words 

on ugly paper 

that no one ever reads 

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
