Our Forever Flowers

fearsome orgasmic blooms

in a jealous world

deceptive fragility

of steely petals and stems

roots entwined with the

hopes of childhood sunbeams

miraculous and defiant

like the vivacious dreams

in your smile

beauty should never apologize

and our love baby

is flora in the midst of death

for the rest of our collective breathes
