Exhibited on the console TV
(vulnerable 3, 6, and 10)
An erect green vase shows
Dozens of Freedom red roses--
Penance of darkness
Dull attar at the wood alter  
Feral stems strike
Fist size buds--
Polaroid picture blossom in my head
a timeline to forgiveness.

In a recycled plastic water bottle
cut from a garden bush, she
places a single red cross rose bud
purposefully on a solitary night stand--
Ethereal perfume
Whimsical stem
Hair shirt thorns
Resurrection of an eternal sign--
A rose is a rose without mercy
nailed within my altered home.

  1. yikes...some hard undertones of this...the fist size bulbs...strike...a timeline for forgiveness and their symbolism of freedom....the hair shirt and penance...


Thank you for taking a moment to leave me your word of wisdom.
