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.
