Botanic / “One-way conversation with Agapanthus”

Trouble is
the reflective lyric pose
won’t hold, when every time I greet you
vision splits (courtesy
Dr J’s story concerning patient X’s curious habit
of sticking random
objects—
          recall Dr’s pause…
                                        gesture…stalk
                           &
         flower—up his…SURGICAL REMOVAL
REQUIRED…) It’s true—
we’re amazing strange, don’t you think
Agapanthus.
