  3. thank you for coming ladies)

    these tiger lilies are shot (through) low, from the ground of the graveyard. these tiger lilies grow from the soil of the dead. very much like meat, these tiger lilies.

    their own fire consumes itself.

    and then the stone. the cross. even the stone cross is being eaten.

    this is the world. this is happening. might we never be inured to this.

    not that it should be seen as frightening. but in the least - complicated. in the least - observed, noted...

  4. Everything in this world is devouring or being devoured. This tiger lily is a flame in a graveyard, and you have captured it combusting the dead into the living. Frightening? Maybe. Complicated, perhaps. But most definitely observed, as always, by you...
