Chlorophytum comosum

Yes, spider plant.
Yes, the backdrop is red.
To be specific, a red journal
& yes the words are waiting to appear.
Yes, they will be as sure
& steadfast as time.  Vibrant as red.
Precise as haiku.  Tenacious
as plants.  Words edible as the ripe
which appears on your dinner

    don't go
    don't go

    5. something about
    myself I cannot

    6. bridge they cross
    just to say
    can't even
    our diagonal embrace

    Is this a reference to the mislaid nature of affection? A central motif in an abandoned identity? Why must we complete it possible?
