for the lilly

I’d like to tear the lilly

from the sodden earth..

Rip off it’s delicate petals,

It’s waxen leaves,

Break its wilted stem

Chew and shred them all,

and spit them into the tormented sea.

But the memory of the lilly would remain 

and fertilize my hungry roots

to nurse a yellow viper

Who suckles on my brilliant pain.
