Stephen's baking pans,
Jenny's wash cloths.
the garden appears in the lab,
germination mats and a humidifier,

and created the perfect humidity chamber
for my experiments
ignore the text from Stephen asking where
his baking pans are,
ignore the cold seeds and the dry rooms at home,
ignore the Christmas lights and their timer.
let science begin.
