Image for the poem Flowers


why give a gift of death...    
and call it love?  
funny as young boys    
we grow up indoctrinated    
signifying a woman's worth    
by uprooting flowers from the earth    
cutting them off from    
the sun and the soil and the rain    
placing them in plain sight    
in that very expensive fancy vase    
as an undying expression of affection    
knowing full well    
they will wilt and they will die    
much sooner than they were destined    
as a symbolic sacrifice of  
everlasting love..
