Plant Food by D. W. Baker

I would be a plant

in your garden

and be happy

for a short life,

hearing nothing

but your thoughtless song,

watching you feel

the sun unhurried

by the clock,

knowing that when

I decompose I will still

feed your flowers.


D.W. Baker is a poet and reading teacher living in Florida with his family. His work can be found in Snowflake Magazine, humana obscura, Modern Haiku, hedgerow, and elsewhere. Find him on twitter/spoutible: @lowermelody
