How do I tell you
that you
are a beautifully handcrafted clay pot?

Soon, a delicate orchid will find herself pulled up
and replanted into your caress.
And she will be correct
when she sings glad tidings to the fields
of all the ways that she is blessed.

But I am a sunflower--
much too stubborn to contain
And I have found the great terrain.
