Selling Flowers by David L. White

dedicated to Delmar Shreeves and High Vicki
“Delmar, I say, Delmar,
didn’t we just pass God
in the last parking lot
and weren’t he selling flowers
and yelling something about;
‘jus;’ take one home fr yr old lady today’?
not selling flowers fr unicef or jesus or fuck love
jus’ flowers in patches
sewn by his old lady with that same love
who doesn’t either wave nobody’s
raggy banner. they ain’t pushing
anything real hard.
“God Dammit, Delmar, I say,
“why don’t we swing around the corner
and see what he’s got in carnations?”
