Plastic Plants

Plastic Plants

The day you realize this life has been lived inside of a snow globe.
The white confetti falls all around,
But nothing absorbs into you.
The day you realize the plants are plastic and they’ll never really grow.
Though you had hoped.
Or was that disillusion?
Nothing but a waste of time.
Nothing but a waste of water.
And now we know the world is all glass walls and fake greenery,
And we finally feel the air inside the tiny glass world getting thinner.
As we press our hands and faces to the edge of this life of facades,
It becomes numbingly apparent we placed ourselves here…
Inside this dome lies.
But at least here, when the snow falls, it doesn’t weather the flowers.
They never feel a thing
And neither do we.
