i’m picking flowers
from your garden
to adorn my table

(i’m looking to get
lost in the beauty
& horror of death.)

someone
picked a flower from my garden
to adorn his table

&left me horrified at
the death of something
beautiful.

but is it stealing
if you’re just speeding
up [the course of] nature?

(that’s what i’ll say
if you catch me
clutching your pride…

that’s what i say
if they ask me…
where’s your sense of… pride?!)
