You’ll have a passing fancy with terrariums
and tie-dyed bedspreads, which is not much use
in the time of need—a flash of insanity
in which you attempt to grow
the most unprofitable of fruits.
Just teething issues you’ll say
while covering the mouthpiece
of the phone—a garrulous solicitor
on the other end trying to tell you
when it’s all going to end.
