Growing boredom in plants

I try talking

to my plants every day,

because I heard it

was good for them.

But after three weeks of talking

one of the plants

said

“Why won’t you shut up, already?”

***

But I wasn’t insulted,

I understand that

it was not so much

a sign of intelligence,

as it was

the rote memorization

of sounds
