for elaine, of sorts

obtrusive potted plant
in the corner,
hunched and drooping
in the way i
project myself -
tendrils out into
a line of sight,
oh surely
you'll reach, you'll run,
or pivot
your neck to gaze away at
something flowered
that you can set in the sun -
roots not
decomposing + falling away
rotted under, deadwood,
dead weight of
limbs wrapping around to hold you
to the dirt.
