Fallen Garden

The flowers I coaxed into brightness have entered the season of rain and death, some shaped like mindless doodles and some like the silver spires of science-fiction cities, some like warrior angels in heavy gold breastplates and some like metal spoons bent by telekinesis, some like broken traffic lights and some like the chewed stub of a pencil, some like failed revolutions and mass beheadings and some like a cold voice that asks for me by name.
