A Wolf Stalks Amongst Her Sunflowers

Stepy Kamei

She snarks amongst the cornflowers
And you take it like a real Marlboro Man; so righteous in your passion for passivity.
You traversed half-Earth’s hen and plucked back to her clucking castaway tongue; chuckling so you may nod about her nightly.

She suppressed her sour mood through sweet marigold mass, captured in the lens between her glasses.
What beautiful, stunning display of gorgeous Earth’s glory she canvased—
Then significance unfurled like a gargoyle slamming its grey face
Onto odd cathedrals—
Not a gypsy, but grizzled gargantuan fear, which birthed

A warranted response to run from your clacking thumb tips:
