“I’m in a glass case of emotion.”
-Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, 2004 –
I’m in a glass case of emotion
casually placed on your shelf
a trophy for the world to see
yet suffocating, dessicating,
becoming a museum piece;
an oddity, an icon of other times,
something you visit on “free day”
Let me be your Wardian case
deep with pungent loam,
planted with perennial seeds;
something you water and tend.
I promise if you do, you’ll see
me green, grow, and bloom
as you also sprout yourself anew.
