Pressing flowers
trying to preserve
who once was
who now is
Pressing flowers
a frozen capsule of time
collecting dust
Remember me?
Remember you?
find me
Put me in a book
so I'll never be lost again
preserve what has already died
Sit at your desk and continue
to glue me down
And I will watch you
until not a single one remains
