chrysanthemums


i can't help but 
feel 
that the 
chrysanthemums
were a last attempt 
they are white
it's a 
bit 
of a 
shame
you start to say 
like
one day i will 
explain
which of course 
you won’t
i want to tell you
it's okay
but the flowers have 
one hundred eyes 
and ears
and someone 
has left 
the back gate open
when i say
white 
the 
flowers 
perk up 
no
one day you 
will not 
explain
what you will do is
continue 
to be 
a weed
the kind that 
separates 
and rolls away
someone has 
forgotten 
to 
give them 
a mouth
