I gathered my houseplants around, and 
explained to them the good and the bad, how I would 
potentially neglect them at times, or spoil them because
love makes you spoil things you love, they could
go parched for days or feel suddenly waterboarded, but they could 
laze in glorious sun, and I would
prune and fuss over them, and 
assure their nutrition, and
help them propagate, and 
talk with them
