Absorbing The Scent – a poem

“Absorbing The Scent”
a poem by Jeremy C Kester

Tending the garden
the flowers
beauty surrounds
and falls
the petals not enough
to secure my lust
but to clip the flower
the stem from which I take
and wish to place
and steal it to my pocket
to keep the beauty for me
and none else
but why do we steal
such as I play with my fingers
to absorb the scent as such
