You couldn't grow irises out of your heart

You couldn't grow irises out of your heart -
            But you could get out rhinestones,
                              Dazzling like diamonds -
         And you bought others this way;
The others who could 
             Live in the dark and cold,
             Painting their rusty hearts in gold -
        And everyone seemed satisfied
             To be a tiny parasite
                   In this world.
