You’re/I’m

You’re parakeet.
I’m hummingbird.
This means nothing to nectar.

I’m milk thistle.
You’re tomato bloom.
Let’s build boxes for bees.

You’re cast iron.
I’m stainless steel.
Who knew the earth could cook?

I’m Russian olive.
You’re cottonwood.
Don’t believe in trash trees.

You’re snare crescendo.
I’m cello smoke.
Song is sung by silence.

I’m camera.
You’re handheld mirror.
Bedtime burns our selfies.

You’re lost button.
I’m tarnished dime.
Whose deep pocket is this?
