Flowers of the Sun

~Flowers of the Sun~


A gripe of dandelions

in the neighbor's yard
grabs rays while the grabbing
is good and creeps to his open door
as a witness to the mental beating
he gives his wife.


Today he's too starved

for air to swing his fist
towards her face while

Venus and Saturn scream
"fire!" and rue the day
they wed the flaming sun.
