for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

begonias once/wintry day/as if by decree, et. al

begonias once–
by her window waiting
on snow

shorn of its flowers
its name magnolia–

wintry day–
caricature of cherry trees
against opaque sky

ah, how it blossoms the Christmas cactus

as if by decree
the poinsettia sheds
a week from Christmas
