when they say, “Stop I’m Blushing –
Let Me Pink About It!”
and barely pause before
Such a Fuschia-n of Colors erupts
from the stalks. They worry
Nothing Rhymes With Lilac
and need to be comforted, call themeselves
Lavendarling in a bulbous coo,
singing the Sock It To Me Blues.
These Cotton Candy Speech Bubbles
stain the mouth, sweet garden of vowels.
