Introduction to Photographs of Flowers
As an entertainer
I don't often
write about flowers.
I don't own them.
They are never
original and thus
are never true.
They don't push
against the friction
of my mind properly.
However they are the
sex organs of
our neighbors, the
vegetables. They
model the most
important part
of our swift passage
over the years with their
fresh beginnings and their
They mean
what we do
quietly. But
they state it
grandly, with
pretty smells.
We hide in them,
even use them to
draw each other
into our dark and
private corners.
