The Hibiscus


No one has told him
about the Indian summer
and he got all confused

When he realized
his mistake
it was already
too late

So now
he is standing here
but in blossom

Unbecoming, unashamed
wearing his eccentric pink jewels
on his naked body

Why am I trembling

Why is the world
so beautiful

Why is beauty
so harsh
