Part of the Escapril series on Instagram.
Most days I take to the greenhouse,
surround myself in lush foliage,
breathe deep in the green musk.
Feel humidity strong as July
purge me of my humanness.
Watch the honeysuckle pucker
as succulents prick my skin,
taking me as one of their own.
I’m already mostly water –
empty me of everything
except my purpose.
A nice thought. A new calm.
Close my eyes, feel a final bliss
and pretend there is only this.
