Sepia



Dying flower. Sepia-tinged petals that
Remind me of your skin when the undertaker
Had finished with you - waxy.

I knew you weren’t there, but I
Needed a memory, or so I thought.
I wish I’d never touched your cheek.

Days like today I miss you badly and
That flower smelled like death. Sweet magnolia.
