Dummy Fucking Amazing by Sterling-Elizabeth Arcadia




adventuring north up

mountfern street

the roses in one yard stand and smell

of flour and cake batter

rainbow sprinkles rolled underneath

delicate frosting flowers

beside the next driveway a trellis grows

a magnificent arc from simple sideboards

its roses hang and smell

of a late model corolla idling

halfway in the driveway and look

like an unhelpful can i help you

no no

no one can fix that

i can hardly smell

a flower
