Love’s faded flowers

trash

         Trash, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, mixed media on canvas)

Trash
       garbage
the faded flowers
       of friendship
heaped in a pile
       of sweepings
of yesterday’s news
       to which everyone
turns a blind eye
       as though
it never happened
       forgotten smiles
kisses consigned
       to ancient history
who lives by the sword
       dies by the word

John Lyons
