A Bold Letter to the Lost Flowers

4.

Oh darlings, I miss you.

I lurk and stare at you

from behind screens of glass.

~

1.

A mouse once lived

in an art museum,

filled with paintings of talking flowers.

~

5.

In my chair, safe at home,

I muse on your dealings in the world

and your lives without me.

~

2.

Every day, the mouse used to

talk to the beautiful flowers

and wish it could become,

one of them.

~

6.

You lead such interesting lives,

I’ve heard you discuss me.

If you miss me, why don’t you call me?

~

3.

But alas it could not,

and the mouse was transferred

to another museum.
