Honeysuckle ho hum

Riding in the ho hum,

among jittery transients pacing the walkways

Pushing shopping carts of dollar store lavender shampoo

on public transit.

A single honeysuckle flower

resplendent in squalor

flattened upon the linoleum walkway.

How did it get there?

An orange gem in the soot,

No one dare disturb.
