Text Message

I planted a microphone in the bush, and the bush
sang. No burning, just a muted internal

hum. Floodwaters sloshed by to say hello,
proffering an upsurge of bulbs. Scarlet,

azalea, do-not-forget-my-name. No
gardener, I keeled them up in clumps. Almost

no effort to crush them, just a squeeze;
I wouldn’t say I was sorry to blacken their

lines. Next time, I’ll bring jam and a bucket
of daisies: singe me, I’ll wager white petals sneer.
