THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 261

Horticulture

In computer engineering,
we got stuck doing something
totally unrelated to computers.
We helped the horticulture class
plant a small crop of Liriope
as ground cover.
Most of the horticulture class
had gotten in-school suspension
for trying to grow marijuana
hydroponically
in the school greenhouse,
so the class contained five students,
plus us.
We knew nothing about planting things.
All we knew was ripping apart metal,
making sparks,
and booting from a floppy.
But planting was strangely peaceful.
It was soothing to pat the dirt
around a plant,
give it a sprinkling of water,
and hope it will grow
stronger and taller.
