Roses shadow roses

Roses shadow roses

Acrylic, dying roses, petals on canvas.
60 x 60cm. Because...

.....You said you wanted flowers, roses, yellow.
I protested - Don't agree with flowers.

Cut and dropped in water, ribbon, message.
Left unrooted. Dying by the day.

Picked up on the forecourt. Unloved harvest.
Pay the Earth to rip them from the earth.

Saying it with flowers - “Sorry”. Love you”.
“Look at what a loving man I am”.

The refuge of the witless, guilty, shameless.
A thoughtful show that takes a seconds thought....
