inflorescence, Poetry

inflorescence

when i imagined you, i made you taller, broader, louder. i made you with wings, with hair to your waist, breasts round and soft. i made you me. i made you greater. i lost faith in your ability to please me, so instead i dreamed of me. —i dreamed of me

inflorescence is a poetry collection divided into six parts: seedling, blossom, drought, pruning, flourish, and rebirth.

It is the process of flowering. the process of becoming more.
