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.
