Room for Green?

can you make room in
this stale room for
my dry plant?

thumbs now more black than green
from swingin’ hammers during
that summer i tried to build
her that grand gazebo
while hammered,

out back.

was then and there i saw
a garden in throes
of shameful
plight,

so i brought home some leafy green
in hopes its pigment proves
better than mine
at catching
light.
