Proof of Purchase



Her reply blushes,

apologetic for existing

beyond what her

back story projected


(probable destiny –

doormat, a yearbook

dilemma). From

inside those petals,


she can’t possibly

appreciate the

mystery and fragrance

that draws him in,


fly to honey. She

checks her nails,

boredom masking

terror, and another


one bites the dust.

She will add him

to the collection,

proof of purchase.

    This delicate beauty; a honey trap?

  2. The photo is just beyond beautiful, Mel–if I ever get my novel done, seems like that would be a beautiful cover photo… I was following the poem, loving it–until the last stanza, where I lost you; so I’m feeling rather dull and dweebish.
