Children of Green

I see you:
we are both children of green
chartreuse, forest and aquamarine;
you got things you wanted
but they didn’t get you:
a job and a ring and a home for plus-two.
It’s a thing I can’t say
a thing I shouldn’t do
but here we are,
the children of green and the stars
sans plus-two.
