Bouquet Horribilis

Flowers came and flowers went
week in, week out, in turn
lessening their potence
and loving intent
fragrance was dying by the moment
a stench began to fill the room
as time elapsed
a thought occurred
perhaps……
the writing was on the wall
from first bloom that showed
it’s pretty face
to grace a dining table
yet unable to sustain sweetness of self
week in, week out, in turn
flora became
bouquet horribilis………..

Artist's Description

There was once a man who gave me flowers every week
He had an agenda so to speak
when the response did not comply
the flowers began to die
