Forget the Monotony of Old Poets           

 
Rip the earth and breach the orchid, disfigure its rare and delicate beauty. Crush the exotic petals under foot—a semiotic taboo. Turn to her, raise the malevolent roots for her to see, an heirloom in crisis, and hold at arm’s length. Eavesdrop on her distress, on her vacillation, and tell her that you love her.
