Just Don’t Kill the Money Tree

She wants to keep her plants alive
and not own a car. Have warm walls
around her. Her father says there are
some problems you can’t escape –
grit your teeth and put up with it.
(She also has dental bills coming.)
She gets a monthly bus pass
and sees how it goes, sees
how much she prefers to walk,
sees all around her how much pain
can be bought and banished
if you have the time to listen
to where it hurts.
