IN HANDLING A FLOWER

MELINDA LASZCZYNSK

In handling a flower,

the tail of the snake manifested itself.*

 

In handling a paper,

the sediment of the past surfaced again.

 

Pressed into a stone

movement and freedom-

the emergence of our bones**

 

Material as resistance,

Color is defiance,

a flower is a portal.

 

*Gateless Gate

**Vibrant Matter
