February 1st: 10:00 based on Banksy’s ‘Floral Protestor’. Finished: 10:39.
A War of Roses
as tossed into a bed of bedlam
only pepper the sheets
The feet carry
but the flaming fields
They’re a squeak
in the disquieting dark
and the spark that can’t be heard amidst the showering shouts.
Over the notes of thistled throats,
the canary coughs crimson.
It’s about time the metals gather their litter.
