Petal Sortilege

Tuesday 15th December 2020
Sophya Polevaya

A honeycomb circle of
joy
encased in
an ivory crown of
'truth'.
This common wildflower
of the garden
a Marguerite.

"Are we true blues?"
The amoureuse
consults this mystique
nature's innocent
fortune teller 
the desires of 
her heart:
the gentleman liatris.

Round the 
roulette wheel goes
what answer will she give?

Yes...
Yes...
_Yes...
...YES!


Each petal pizzicato
a hypnotic effeuillage
flirting with
fantasy and touch
continual blushes and rushes.

"Oh I'm crazy about Daisy"
For mademoiselle amoureuse 
it has become
an addictive
love affair with 
the Marguerite 
blazing stars in her eyes.

Oh...

But then a
NO
and another 
no, no, no, no
Re-echoed
again as an encore
no, no, no, non!

Easy it is 
to forget 
how double edged
the blades 
of this brisé fan are
The queen of swords
switching twofold
cloud nine feelings
with sudden killjoy slap.

NON
OUI_
NINE
__E

The ultimate 
pick me up
or
a stinging 
love bite.
