Profligate –
bent trackside buddleias]
see how thin beauty wilts
[an age thing they all say]
& out-of-reach of washes –
of any weed-killing spray –
See a blackened branch &
gauge how close that was
[& lucky you were] to grip
to life –
his bent bouquets
offered up –
no labels –
love from said –
A planted
place sat from sick kisses
& similar creep of poison
