April 1985

 

you left your flower in the car

last night

red on blue

like how I feel

stuck behind the visor

up where I could see it

and remember

and smile

 

now

in an old ginger-ale bottle

it struggles to live

and I pray it does

for the way it brightens this room

is like the way you brighten my heart
