“THE MAGNIFICENT SEASON, OR THE BEAUTIFUL UPRISING, OR NATURAL CYCLE WARFARE”

Today is Tax Day
    in this Wildflower garden,
    Blossoms lined to pay,
    petals, leaves, stems, "Pardon.."
    poked Yellow Primrose #three
    to collection officer Bee


    "Must I really give
     what makes me live?"
     Silence, then it starts,
    "You take our parts!"
     cried Purple Aster #seven
     grabbing its pistol, M1911

    "We Live! We Die!
but Beauty is our side,
us Flowers will always fly!"
