It is NOT a Poinsettia

A Mangora gibberosa.

         It was

                       It is

                                       It was

weaving magenta ribbons      of Mesh

like a    May festival dress made

for a princess

It was Beautiful.

A Narcissus Daffodil.

It was

                         Always was

Dull         rotting Milk

Swaying in the wind like

The     damp  golden curls of a

Dancing toddler

It was ugly.

An Aquilegia.

It was

                It should be

as suffocating as the smell of      

Marijuana

Left to    burn in the sun

But    it is sweet

Fresh honeydew.

A Coccinella Trifasciata

              It

                   It isn’t

subtle like the  vapour from

the pot of slack Brandy    boiling on a

rusted stove

It is a Beatle.

It is    Nothing.

It is

                It was

It isn’t

                   It should be

Everything, but

It is Not

as cool as      the ocean breeze

as soft as        an owl feather

as smooth as   a sun-kissed stone

It Is Not a Poinsettia
