Pax Bromeliad

“I see you still have the plant she gave you.”

“Does that bother you?”

“I guess not. It’s just I thought you hated her.”

“I didn’t hate her, Jeff. I didn’t think she was right for you.”

“Well, you weren’t wrong.”

“Anyway, the plant is not her, even if she gave it to me. Tell you the truth, it’s been so long that I usually forget where it came from.”

“Looks healthy.”

“Oh yes. I watched a video on whatchamacallit. Youtube. It was about how plants like music. I’ve been playing that Bach cassette.”

“Didn’t she give you that, too?”
