Extravagance.

Early summer’s chromatic abundance,


is everywhere,

in wild exuberance;

somewhere there’s a bleak

landscape of grays and browns

that all the bright colors have been

sucked away from and sent here;

all the shades, all the strategies,

to reach towards the sun

luxuriant unfurling

of flower DNA into petals

presenting their organs of generation
to all pollinators,

 come up and see me, right now.

Table flowers.

They’re not that far from where they grew,

cut and brought inside,

gathered into splendor

in a vase,

perched above the edge

of my screen

 to watch as I puzzle out my mystery.

Blooming yard.

walkabout, this afternoon, to find deep red with busy bee,

pale red with kanji characters,

poppy world full of self,

rising from a bed thought lost,

while yellow bush roses,

and blue fingers, which our maidens know by a grosser name,

showing some purple shared, in the same pot

or shared with satiny iridescence

shimmering around a black hole,

in purple waves

and glitter,


while at rows end, marigold companions


and almost a blooming leaf, twinning stacks climb orthogonally towards sun


and a tannish leaf kind of flowerish

all of which have names that are common
and the uncommon names are all scientific

Sometimes, before you settle, you circle.

      Beauty gobsmacks.

Baleful.

Hay there.

Shroom.

Makes you larger.

Cluster.

Petal omnicolor.

Sunshine reflected.

Gold rush.

Centered.

Burgundy on fire.

Orange.

Mufti.
