Small Framed Portion

Greenhouse.  Beneath little panes pocked
by time and dotted with mold and lichen, rot,
a riot of tropical effulgence, small framed portion
of the endlessness.  Spiky plants blossom
like ideas; light glances off the glass and gleams
on the permanent hunger, steams.  Everything
blooms or is green.  You shrug into your coat.

From "3 Men: Portraits without the Human Figure" by Deena Linnett


  1. Did you see the movie yet? It was so good! Definitely MS, a lot of people still decorate their houses that way (which I like), and it was filmed in the Delta, where my Mama is from. My Papaw (Mama's Daddy), is still the owner of the one barber shop in the small town he lives in. He has had that barber shop for 52 years now. Anyway, I was excited about the movie & just wanted to tell you it was good! :)
