The good thing about trawling the too-big-to-be-digested mass that is the internet is that one occasionally comes across something wonderful. Like this poem. Want more? Go.

Hothouse Boyfriend
by Sarah Herrington

I keep picking
sunny boys
with bright faces
and tall backs
for the vase
on my kitchen table
watering can boys
that brighten rooms
with their blooms-
only later
to come home
to find piles of
scattered on the floor
I keep cleaning
up this mess
next time
I'll choose a cactus
or some inconspicuous thing
grown on a rock
that knows what it is
