forego such roses

while i cannot forego such roses,
each fallen petal gathers me whole,
readies me without delay to restore
me back to gardens even as i am ready
to wilt… the scent delivers me back
to you, morning sunsets to midnight
seances, i can no longer recall what
happened in between except these
flowers somehow must be resurrected,
if not pilfered from a dream
