The flower wilted
in the shaded-ground soil
off from the garden.
It took months to bear,
yet as the fruit hangs heavy
the tree holds tighter.
from the tender woodpecker
break the tree’s thick bark.
He’s the one who stays
waiting outside the doorway
when others roll off.
Do you think—that is,
could you—er, would you want to
go see a movie?
