(after William Carlos Williams)
This is Just to Say
We have spread to
that are in
you were probably
they were delicious
This is not factually accurate. There are no orchids in the basement, and as far as I know there are no scale on the orchids elsewhere, knock wood. I needed it to be the orchids so the "hoping would bloom" part would make sense. The photo is real, and was one of my plants, but it's a year and a half old.
Poetic license aside, this is precisely the sort of note I imagine scale insects would leave, were they capable.
