Connections: September 5

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

The zinnia is a patient flower,

enduring insults by the hour.

The finches yank her petals fair,

 and spit the petals anywhere

after they’ve guzzled the seeds.

Then a bee has a thought

of a little zinnia merlot

but he overdoes

can’t even buzz

and

sidewards

bemoans his intemperate deeds.
