Ana, Her Husband, and the Garden


Matt Méndez is neither a poet nor a gardener, but he loves the poem "His Wife," by Andrew Hudgins, because it reminds him so much of his esposita. Even if she was born on another planet, sometimes she smells like the very Earth they live on. Not only has he seen her bite into a tomato like the wife in the poem, he also loves the way she usually smells of something subtle and sweet. Indeed, she is responsible for his olfactory reawakening!
