Greenhouse by Phoebe Thomson

From the second we get into the greenhouse.
You are sweet steam blinded
blundering, foggy, foolish
in the hot wet of this green.

A green as much as this
could surprise you for life,
could leave you feeling, but not seeing,
always twitching,
like touched ferns.

Phoebe Thomson is a recent graduate who studied English. She lives in South London and likes making illustrations and poetry.
