For You To Learn Earnestly - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

Pick up all the flowers dear
from the garden and put all of them
in one glass vase

watch how the colors change
from yellow to dull and then
how they all fade to brown
till they all wilt and then

three days at most this hot summer
time, the petals fall and then
another day and then another one
they all crack in utter dryness

and inside the vase see how the water
foul and stinky begin to grow the
wriggling mosquitoes as though
asking for more....deaths of
those fresh flowers that from the
garden you all pick.
