this morning I am re-potting snake plants - 
black gold, Laurentii, fernwood (or maybe a rebellious robusta?) 
and Zeylanica, specifically - and I utter to myself that some of the leaves
look pretty ragged and I probably should clip those out,
to which the plants collectively sigh, and so we make a pact: 
no frond gets left behond.
