Flowers have faces. They are happy or sad.
Their faces change, like ours;
unlike us, it doesn’t mean
uh-oh a new mood out of nowhere dawned.
Technically it is immoral to kill a flower
but people do it all the time,
to smooth something over or to please a lover.
Nature just rolls right on, headless.
