Iris

8 Apr

For day 8 of napowrimo – versify a flower

I live alone
With Iris
In my one-room home
It’s bliss

Her flesh is soft
And shiny
Face aloft
She beckons me

She draws the flies
I don’t mind
It’s no surprise
For her kind

I know she’ll rot
Before long
That is why I wrote
This song

A testament
To her worth
Before I lay her
In the earth.
