Flowers Like the Apocalypse

Dark poetry

The contamination flowers
growing along the creek bank
bloom in the most brilliant colors
like the four horsemen

What mysteries the creek holds
all its ancient stones tossed and tumbled
and these pretty dangers ride on the breeze
a slow poison of pollen on the prowl
