Take Me To Flowerbed or Lose Me Forever

Let me


with raindrops to the soil.

I long to dip

my slender tongue

into tulip mouths:
(lusty pollen collecting on my lips
sucking petals, pollinating

in the morning

I’ll pack my suitcase

with potting soil

place garden


into housecoat pockets.

say I’m leaving you.
I’m taking root.

You’ll find me intertwined

with ivy in flower beds

hair tanged in

the monkey grass.
