Flowers Fade

The flower drops it petals
Each day a few more fall
Off the stem, brown and dead.
Soon it will be just a drooping
Green stock without water.
Can I throw it out
Once it has lost its beauty?
Is its death a good enough
Should I have instead dried
It upside down for eternity?
I didn’t want an eternity of
So I let it die by accident
So I had an excuse to
Throw it out.
You understand that once it
Is dead it has no purpose.
You cannot argue I should
Keep it.
You understand.
You understand?
I cannot help that there is
No more water.
Flowers fade.
