Bouquet

DandelionsThe back and forth was painful

rehearsing the cruelty of teens

this mother and daughter pair

trading second-hand invectives

of the day’s wasted schooling

while straggling and distracted

along came a younger skipping

and stooping to pluck another

and another annoying the pair

they turned harshly to scold

her dalliance but in return

she offered a child’s handful

of dandelions as a bouquet.
