The author's comments:

I've been trying to write a new piece to my "flora poems" collection. I was inspired by watching these Korean florists discussing how the cotton flower is one of the new "it" flowers. Cotton flowers have relatively thick bristles that if you're careful with will prick you hands, causing bleeding. “Behind every beautiful thing, there's some kind of pain.” ? Bob Dylan
