Misplaced/displaced


Waiting on leather couches near St. Andrew station
How do they get the trees to grow indoors?
Seems unnatural, perverted, blasphemous
Even with two-story sunlit glass walls
Chlorinated tap water from plastic watering cans
Air foggy with exhalation from a thousand preoccupied mouths
Drifting in and out like hornets from the nest
They are only pet trees, shadows of trees
Wind doesn't reach them and they house nothing
But dust and murmured, superficial echoes.

I guess it's kind of like lions in the zoo eh? :)
