I do not like flowers in the house

because they remind me of funerals

Of weddings too; a bride's bouquet closely knit

tightly bound with silk ribbons; tighly held.

Flowers make me sad

and still I like to see them

painted on walls on which

I can't smell their scent nor touch their petals

but only see their colors fade

as the light reflected on the wall cover my face

and tears roll down like rose petals

to the bottom of the Earth when saying the last goodbye

flowers with message cards to those who've departed

put inside coffins, inside graves

and on top of their new and forever homes

that is why I do not like flowers

inside houses of people who are alive
