To my dear sweet peony,
Not a second goes by when my thoughts aren't on you. We have spent many novembers together, even sometimes decembers. And when you pop in through the year as a surprise. Oh! You are my delight.
I love your shades of baby pink, fluffy white, your coral...even your burning purple.
No day is ever the same with you. One minute you are closed, and the next you are full of life and ready for anything. I could watch you for hours.
However, I feel like something has changed.
Quite frankly, I think you have turned into a bit of a hussy. Im always seeing you out and about in the arms of other girls, sitting on window ledges and hanging out in every shop, cafe, and public toilet. You are clogging up my instagram feed with jealousy. You are always trying to out do fellow flowers. Opening bigger and better than the humble blooms... never sharing the limelight. But you know what?
I don't even think you smell good. There, I said it.
I know the whole world wants you. Have you no self control? Peon-why can't you just be mine?
Not so lovingly yours,
The Flower Drum
