I remember a place was crowded when the dance-floor was full I remember hunger was when it was dinner-time and I hadnt eaten since lunch I remember when pollution was a brown cloud coming out of a car dispersing and disappearing soon after I remember when a house was where a family lived and appartment buildings had rooms I remember when suicide was a drastic and tragic act not an everyday occurance I remember the days when the future held disaster if we wouldnt heed the warnings and change our ways Nobody sees me and I may not be able to talk but I hear every word they say They probably think I dont understand they think I dont care Ive come to understand that my days are numbered but from what I see their days are numbered as well I am a celery plant root stem and leaves living under Dexters blanket Nobody but Dexter and his mom know about me and theyre saving me for a moment of true desperation If you ask me the moment is now but I dont complain At age 15 and 57 Dexter weighs 80 pounds and his mother weighs the same at one inch shorter One day theyll finally consume me but they shouldnt kid themselves that it will make any difference Their time is approaching Weve lived like this ever since Dexter can remember but not me I remember long before this wretched hole we call home I remember the farmer who planted me and the years and years of being cropped and regrowing again It was very hard for me to tell but indeed I noticed the sky growing more and more muddy year by year Every year it seemed to me that the farmers plot of land grew smaller and the population of my fellow vegetables and fruits seemed to be decreasing as our land grew scarce My first years I would grow tall
