Attention (Felicity)

in the cupboard, they sit, they settle
i slide them in, among the coffee cups
the cheap china rattles, they kick their legs
you watch me with beady eyes

i never see you touch them
i never see you touch them

my hands are worked into the dirt
they spring roots, summer branches
i planted you those flowers,

i never see you touch them

your shoes are up against the door
they're collecting dust, I
wonder what you're seeing when
you're not here

i never see you
