Flowering Caricature

My gifts of tenderness
and vulnerability
are flawed
but there are moments
when the sidewalk
stops rolling
beneath my feet
and I’m real-
without anyone’s
projection
of worth.
It’s fleeting, of course
as there are dues
to be paid
so I follow… as I do;
flowers will be ignored
whether I sing
or swallow the song inside me.
