blossoming individual

women who pride themselves on being different
defying clichés
say they wish not to be given flowers for they die.
what if the Creator thought the same?
meanwhile desiring to be taken to the garden of Longwood
gasp at the fragile orchid petals
twisting their faces towards the Son in praise
finish the day sipping chilean merlot in an Italian café
those prideful, different, women
sip chardonnay and convince men we are all the same
as our vases stay empty
