cheap imitation flowers

Posted to Action Poetry




i had a chance to buy
a stem of flowers
with colours inside crystals
like gems

i put them in a bowl
of tartar sauce
and the leaves fell to their sides
and the timer went beserk
and i smashed it with a hammer
and the pasta was sticky
and i turned out the lights

i had a chance to buy
a flower
and i did - but it died and
i'm still hungry
