Leaf Tear

Leaf Tear

Why must violets
Be violent
And bring orchids
Cryonic
Feelings
Leaving home
Bruised petals
And stem dealings

In pollen
They call it
Demonic
Intentions
In whiteout clouds
And red gas
Handwritten
To cash in

At banks of
Ripped stems
Where deposits
Are made in spines
And bleeding barbs
Offer themselves
In earnest
And in kind
