im sorry, mom
about your cyclamen--
i swear i tried to
keep it alive, all 
vibrant ruffled pink
and cool, white-veined
green

im sorry, mom
about your burning bush--
i swear i tried to
do it right, all
beryl pointed oval leaves
and dying, half-turned
vermilion

im sorry, mom
about your hydrangea--
i swear i tried to
water it well, all
multitudinous blues
and crisp, summer-dry
brown

im sorry, mom
about your daughter--
i swear i tried to
keep her alive, all
vibrant ruffled pink
and cool, blue-veined
white

im sorry, mom
about your daughter--
i swear i tried to
do it right, all
ballet pointed shoes
and dying, half-hearted
magenta

im sorry, mom
about your daughter--
i swear i tried to
water her well, all
multitudinous ringlets
and cracked, summer-dry
skin

im sorry, mom
about your son--
i swear i tried to
weed him out, all
maple doe eyes
and tenacious not-daughter
vigor

im sorry, mom
about your son--
i swear he tried to
prune himself back, all
rosebush hands 
and unfortunate thorn-sharp
red

im sorry, mom
about your son--
i swear i tried to
love myself right, all
the ways you wont
and i lovingly chest-bind
white

i know youre not sorry, mom
but this is the best i can do.
