They Bloom Because You Look For It

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

On a walk, she said

They weren’t here yesterday

It’s like they all arrived overnight

Flowers in pinks and purples

And yellow that looked like gold

I’m glad they’re in bloom

She said

And I thought that they bloom for you

Because you called out to them before

And this is their response

Because you saw beauty

You called them by their name

And thus they arrived

Maybe they bloomed

Maybe they arrived

Maybe they were

Because first

You looked for them to be

Small patch of flowers on the side of a broken sidewalk
Small patch of flowers

Men so desperately want to be beautiful

Men so desperately want to be beautiful But they don’t. Know how They think it requires someone’s attention To be beautiful But beauty just is And as they concoct their wars And focus on their muscles
