She fell asleep beside the white pea flowers.
Her fingers tightened around the green stems.
They snapped in her palm, easily
Lost in the leaf-splattered graveyard.
She fell asleep beside the broken pea spines.
Her hair twisted, mimicking the roots.
They sucked tears from the dirt, quickly
Disappearing into green-splotched pods.
She fell asleep beside the wilting pea plants.
Her body greyed, then browned too.
The plants bowed, then kneeled, regrettably
Dead in the green and red garden.
