So much promise

One day, Dear,  you’ll tower over the sidewalk. Your roots will burst through your pot and dig into the earth, and your vast canopy will provide shade for those walking beneath you. You will have a thick truck, perfectly round and straight. The bottom fifth of your trunk will be speckled brown-orange, and the rest of your trunk a will be bright, pristine white. Once a year your branches will shed their own thin, white-and-orange leaves, little copies of your own elegant form (just a more manageable size), which I will collect, pack, and smoke. You are my malboro tree.
