Growing boredom in plants

I tried talking to my plants

each day,

because I heard it

was good for them.

But after three weeks of

plenty of one-sided

conversations,

one of the plants asked me

to, “Please, shut up.”

***

But I’m not stupid,

that was not

a sign of intelligence,

more than it was

the rote memorisation

of sounds
