the pothos is drowned but i cower still at the foot of your love, peer beneath it all into the dark to figure out what monsters i've let hear my heart beat and steady breath until i am crawling under myself, pressed against the box spring, crinkled and groping for a pot to puke in, head strong and ready slop my contents into the mass. but my hand comes up with dry root.
