parable of 2 flowers

4.

to be seen, the parable of two flowers which are never

alive in each other’s presence, that scrape the blue clay

vase thrown inside out, from whose lip rises

the cobra headed lantern, the whorl of the sepal-sun

corolla burst open to seed the palms and the street

lights that breathe us, our dress afire:

corona, ampere, all these answers outside of me.
