Our debris

flowers

        John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, mixed media)

What makes you think
that these are flowers
that they are meant 
for you or for another

ephemera cut
from newsprint
as flowers fade
as petals fall

This composition
is an act of resistance
an attempt to hold back
the passage of time

was our love an illusion
were we mere cut-outs
filling a virtual space
a virtual time

collage of names
of people and places
that constitute
an existence

the life-prints
that we leave
in our wake
our debris
