    I am tired of solitary roses.
    Pure red and perfect,
    long stemmed and lovely,
    cutoff at the ankles,
    dressed up for sale and brought home for love,
    but left standing in a fashioned vase
    on a domesticated table.

    Where are the bouquets?
    Those wild, dappled darlings,
    feet in the earth,
    face on the sun,
    smiles popping up everywhere
    for nothing.

    But I also grow weary of petals open to the sun
    but closed to the moon.
    Horny little beggars

    waiting for buzzing bees and butterfly kisses...

    Where are those night-blooming daturas
    smiling in the moonlight?
    Virgin white bells

    waiting for chirping chiropteras,
    leather-tight wings

    and velvet tongues chasing echoes
    in the night...

    Hello qwertyportne,
    Domesticity is mundane, long live the wild! I really enjoyed your poem it read so lovely. You have a great way with words, you give so much but it's not overwhelming. May I also say
    'velvet tongues chasing echoes in the night'
    is a gorgeous closing line. Looking forward to reading more of your work.

We hope you're enjoying our forum!
