Senses of a Flower

An exact image of the flower
That was laid on top of Billie Holiday’s casket

Cinnamon stripes of brush stokes
Rubbing gently

On the top of the silk soft
Canary leaves

Thorns were triangular
Going up like stone stairs

A giant stem
Green, like a bean stalk

Shades of magenta
As if the sun was rising

Curly, yellow, strings hanging
From the middle of the flower like soy beans

The smell of April’s rain and wet grass
Covers the entire stem and flower
