Garden

We planted a gemmed garden
without regard for season
opiate orchid perfume lace
marble pomegranate peacock grace

and there was halogen hemlock
amaranth ambrosia lotus therein
with arsenic sprinkling ripe Rose of Sharon

we tended
fashioning opulent garlands
daisy chained
gracious luscious lavalieres
with such we so oblivious
as all-too the cavalier

but winds do sway
as flourish fades way

tension's tender tendrils
twist mist turning photosynthesis

but the bees butterfly romantic
sublimest gratuitous serpents
serendipitous

strange stewardship ours exquisite
such so immaculate symbiotic

and so I yearn burn
still beg of you
exhaust me such and so utterly
letting...

superficial as sublimely supernal
loose leaf letters
let loose eternal

we knew how it would end
and this must play itself out
organically

with modest plots afforded
it should be no surprise

a bounty of very own making
needed such sparsest of tending

as weathered hearts
betray threat of withering
our spacious gracious garden
now outgrown any seeding

the dandelions reach climbing

kiss me on the forehead
throat and heart

I vomit voluptuous fertilizer
as you leave blossom
fullest blooming
