  • It's hard to think on these frigid winter days.

    But three green tea plant cutting moved into my apartment this morning. Babies who hold a fantasy of my future in their soil.

    It's cold out and the dog is sleeping and my eyes are tired for no good reason; the little plants reach towards the promise of sunlight, bent towards the window, despite the draft.
