Collaborators’ Q&A: How did this poem come to be? Poet Nicelle Davis: During quarantine, the price of house plants skyrocketed. I found it interesting how “life” became the new status symbol for many. How do you feel about plants? Do you think they are sexy? Artist Michelle L’Heuruex: Plants are 100% sexy! Everything about them is sensuous: their curves, their smells, the feel of their petals and leaves in your hand, the sounds they make in the breeze or when rain falls on them, their breath.
