Find A Gardener

Find A Gardener

A Poem by MiriamMB

So what if your name never
centers the orbit of a love song?

So what, if it never pours like honey from a boy's
heavy tongue?

Your mother didn't grace you
the name of your fore-mothers
to hear it bent in the 
mouths of hungry, foreign things.

Keep it close.
Bury it in the garden of you.
The man who wants it
must come with tools in
hand, and new seeds to sow.
