July ways to fly

The difference between
A garden and cut flowers
Is why you will  never return,
And florists are just selling
flowers
the way a bookstore sells book
And the books left outside
in the rain
Will never be read
the way you never will
look for the cut flowers
the slaughtered sheep
wp-1468918965349.jpegthe empty containers of
Food  will never be fed
And the florist will never mourn
the cut flowers thrown away
the way the garden will miss
their clinging green insistance
and their time they stayed
touching the earth with
prayer.
