PERENNIAL


An
ever
expansive
envelope blooms
sprawling painted petals,
stems mount from tilled earth,
the pollen of a pregnant hydrangea’s
pistol resurfacing the sweet sugar saliva
of sentient agape stares wrought in wild fire—
the weight of procreant leaves presuming
a strength, a wilt, withering as paper
folds & tears. Silk curls unfurl
on cotton sheets, as plush
lilly pad pillows drink
the swelling
inside
me.
