   daring me

   to be bold –

   the giant

   red dahlia

   at your door

 

 

   in front of the church

   apple blossoms

   like confetti

   I daydream of weddings

   until the hearse pulls up

 

 

   in a vase

   on the table

   as I wait for his call

   those pale green roses

   called Limbo

 

 

  burdundy-coloured

  poppies –

  so predictable

  my attraction

  to the exotic
