Flowers #24

Here’s a poem, first up for NaPoWriMo and part of the larger, “Flowers” series…

 

Flowers #24  

 

                         extinguish                   the mortal

                                                        petals                          —  longing

                                                                      for a life living             –beyond

                                                                this one            short as a dime

                                               held up by cones and           short rods

                                                                                         short at the shore

 

                                                                           the alabaster demon nude as language

                                                                           with hips that swivel
