Not Everything Is a Metaphor.

 Not everything is a metaphor. That first light in February when
you found the amaryllis snapped at the base, the bulb's green shoot
gorgeously prone on its side, heavy with a smooth pod of impending
vermilion, that same morning you were a bright bloom in the sunlight
through the window.
