My Dear Sweet Potato Vine

Extra

If I had to use one word to describe you, Extra, would be it

You don’t ask much of me

But when it comes to your watering, if it’s not done with the quickness, you droop like no one’s business

Sometimes I think you get a kick out of my reactions to your drooping,

my abrupt pause

my shock

my desperation

my sadness

my attentiveness

and my haste to bring you the elixir of life

And when my back is turned your spring back up, as if nothing happened, as you weren’t on death’s door

Extra

If I had to use one word to describe myself, Extra, would be it.
