too much for the gardener

‘It’s so easy for you,’ the gardener is talking with the flowers again.

“I have to do everything around here.”

He shows them his list, reads off tasks.

Their  powdery purpley faces bounce,  making light.

“If I had only one job I would be like you.”

He reaches to pinch off a bruised petal.

The flower holds still.
