How much time?

it ticks by

in the sound

of the oxygen machine . . .

how much time

remains?

Petal by petal

petal by petal

this withered tulip . . .

I too let fall

some of the things

that no longer matter

Peeled paint

peeled paint . . .

the gray wood

underneath

and a carved heart

long-hidden
