Branch
Erin Kilmer

dead stick
plastic posies
glued gaudy

see what i can do

spray perfume
imitate life
fake freshness

am i tricking you yet?

graft me in
root me deep
pull me closer

let me burrow down to find

everything
all i need
in You

i am learning You are all I need

Your fruit
Your fragrance
burst forth from me
