Pizza in the Bath

With petals sculpted from stone,
Covered in moss,
And a pollen (dustings of the few
kindnesses She’s been granted),
She lives. She blooms still.

She’s no one’s flower.
Planted among ash,
She spins it to gold;
when I’m weary She
lends me rain.

Tolerates, but never suffers.
For any fool should be
so lucky that She gives
them a moment and
trades it for peace.

I owe Her the world,
which owes Her more
and perhaps one day
we’ll square up,
in a cafe on the corner.

She’s owed the best
soil and the brightest sunlight,
the prettiest pot and the
purest air,
but pizza in the bath will have to do.
