I named the dracaena dorado,
A small tree-like plant I had discarded
in the back corner of our dining room;
In favor for the lush backyard garden
smitten with heirlooms and butternut squash.
Long spindly leaves stained brown
sulking in dried dirt in a black rimmed pot.
What’s in a name?
Check back with me in a few weeks.
