OLD FLOWERS

old flowers

bloom in the after hours

trailing scent-

and their words still drawn

fill the night and dawn

the way they went.

new to ours,

coffee shops and church clock towers

remember those times spent

in warm

touchings born

out of movement.

tempting rain showers

in silent bane’s empty hours

shuffle and lament-

the thoughts swarm

and mind-bed warm

coupling of consent.
