“The Last Rebellion” by Palaces P.

Previously published in Disquiet Arts

Why would you buy me roses
when you need only find them, hook your fingers
underneath and pull?
You could deflower me all at once like that
but you give each of them your time

And the hairs on my arms
stand up like the angry grass
waiting for our first steps
down there on God’s Green Earth
