Pressed wildflowers
Lillies with white and gold
Roses with bright green stems and wicked thorns

I heard you like them,
these flowers are beautiful,
are they not?

Do they look perfect in this light?
Are they too much?
Gold lace tracing smooth glass with a glowing sheen;
have your eyes wandered already?

The white tablecloth makes it all pop!
Red wine and dark wooden chairs
A campfire crackles with the music
It’s too much, is it not?

It’s too exquisite to be real
I know it, you know it, it’s lost its appeal
On to the next shiny object
Turn the reel
