I do not agree with the way the hydrangea blossoms
when they rip open in the spring I walk right by them
I know they are there but I do not believe in their stink.
It reminds me of something, maybe
what was once my own humanity, perhaps
too much I know how it hurts.
Like how many insects had to die
before their own bodies
began to burn in the night.  end
