I bought it at the flea market

The tag said three dollars. It was green and luscious. About as tall as a baby that’s just teetered its first ones, and as thick as a mechanical pencil lead. It furled under its own weight. And when I walked past it, my last dollar in hand, it turned to look at me.

I named her Harold, and she was my treeplant (she wasn’t really either, so I decided she was both). I cradled her in my arms and bartered her down. The seller wouldn’t budge, until I offered my left shoe as well. Harold crooned and I cried softly.
