I have no green thumb
no inclination to grow one beyond
a love of mint and chives…
But I tell the time by the things I have tended
To love deeply
(Quarter past 2, my knobbly, freckled adoration of my gaptoothed neighbour)
To cry over
(17 past midnight my first dog, buried, 1:47am the plot twist I didn’t see coming)
To learn the hard way
(cracked hours pass without a heartbeat, centuries in the pauses, people suck and kindness burns)
Crops and harvests and sowings
(giants newborn to always)
That I tended there,
Fresh mint on my fingers and tongue.
