My Jade Plant has Died

It died from the wrong kind of care
the kind that inflicted too much pain
that made life intolerable
unlivable

It sits
wilted and judgmental
in a white ceramic tray
set on a jaunty angle at
the far end of my dresser so
it can bask in the afternoon sun
that it no longer feels

My Jade Plant has died
