In here:
no slugs,
no snails,
no brutal winds,
no nibbling insects,
no pissing cats,
no spores,
no weeds,
no fingers
–we give thanks.
Not here:
intoxicating liquids, or miniature ships.
This garden speaks:
for the living,
for the aquarium,
things in tanks,
in pots,
behind bars,
behind glass.

For the contained,
framed,
labelled stuff
in museums.
[35]
It says:
the price is vigilance.
Our constant call:
the humility to ask simply
not to be left to rot,

dry out,
or,
be forgot.
