“the ironic loneliness of the hipster cafe plant”

not conceived but planted
i wasn’t raised but watered
when i got too big 
i was cut back and trimmed
they tied me to a stick
so that i would not be crooked 
now fully grown i stand alone
in a silver ceramic bowl
observing gossip and bravado
over latte macchiatos 
and the latest stupid hair cuts.
