Wilted Flower

January 22, 2009
By Devin Nottingham, Fullerton, CA

Unlawful recommends
the thought of a wilted flower
long decayed with the process
of life and death
hanging on a moment
for a glance of sunshine
a break in the gloomy days
which mark the leathered skin
and the ran
which weighs down the delicate petals
parched with nothing to drink
yet water all around
the wilted flower has nothing
it's head hangs in shame.
