Muscle Love Tree

Muscle Love Tree

If you’re not buying me
when I freely offer you me
who I thought had a
tickle-feather soul, then

I must go to oblivion
where many are the
lost flowers, but I

don’t know
the secrets of
the pistils and stamens

because I’m not a flower
nor do I care to be
your muscle-love tree.

— Douglas Gilbert
