Yesterday ...


Sunflowers suffer a brisk death.

Surviving in summery distress is an art.
She holds the fruit of paradise between sunburned lips.
Rhone detached her hat from a sleepy shopkeeper,
and crowned her with it and his intoxicating lovemaking.

Miserably loud crows filter in and out of the sun, only half afraid.
She remembers when men fell to their knees at the sight of her.

  8. You make me think of how much I give up for the sake of feeling loved. Not worth it. Beautifully written poem.

  9. Poor Rose (was her name Rose?). Nice 'scarecrow' write, Shauna.
    Your lovely poem reminded me of an old song, 'Second Hand Rose,' sung by Barbra Streisand:

    "Second Hand Rose

    Father has a business strictly second hand
    Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand
    Stuff in our apartment came from fathers store
    Even things Im wearing someone wore before
    Its no wonder that I feel abused
    I never get a thing that aint been used

    Im wearing second hand hats
    Second hand clothes
    That's why they call me
    Second hand rose

    ... [and much more]
    "

  12. Sandy, you are on target. It is a shame when I
    think about how much women give up for love,
    however in some cases it's totally worth it.

    merciless. Ty.
