The upside of thirst

I used to kill plants with love
watered them too much
not understanding their quiet language
not knowing they need to get thirsty
to bloom.

This is true for poems and husbands too
pay attention
but give them space
go for a walk
and see
how he wants to kiss your face
cold and red from the wind
how the words come unstuck
sliding into the poem
as though they have finally
arrived home.
