“Lilies” By: Deona Skidmore

The flowers you bought
Are in the bottom half of a bong
Because I had to improvise,
I’d never been given flowers before
Because to everyone else
I am “not that kind of girl.”
I can still smell them, the flowers you bought.
The last one bloomed today
The day you decided not to call…
The baby cries from down the hall.
