“Cold Frame” by Sanjeev Sethi

 

Love like Eucalyptus or Lavender was sabuline.
Cacoethes for your company I understand now:
the arenosity I had to encounter by cholla-like
jabs too. Nursery a green-thumber creates when
in love is cast with lofty intentions and lovey
-dovey concerns, yet it is incult for some.
