For the B Team - Sept. 29, 2022

every ooh and aah

we aim if for

a flower’s

sunny side

the dressed up

showoff side

the hair and makeup side

the red carpet side


preferred by

the eyes of cameras

bees and butterflies


perfect for coupling and

uncoupling us to

birth and death


a fistful for first dates

blankets for wedding’s vows

give a rose spear a heart


then there’s the B squad

the hidden scaffold

the nuts and bolts

and girders that hold beauty


tell me who turns

a blossom upside down

and says anything


anything at all?
