The Gardener

To her detriment
She failed to grasp her beauty

To his detriment
He believed in failure

She said
“Pursuing a career in music
Isn’t very realistic.”

She failed to see the irony
In his statement of agreement

“No, it isn’t very realistic at all.”

He spent his days
Lost in creating non-realism

She spent her days sewing
Seeds of compromise.
