Old Wife’s Tale

Bonsai trees
white asparagus
Chinese ladies feet
bottled up, contained, restrained
We have a habit of controlling -
forcing, shoving, might over what might
His neatly clipped hedge
my manicured lawn
trained, tamed and tacked
When we first met, it was frolics and falls
now I'm contained behind his glass wall
