Mary Ann and Archibald

Most flowers grace
the Spring and Summer.
Not so the nasty Filzy-Flowers
Mary Ann and Archibald:
they’re a bummer.

We don’t know why.
Most Filzy-Flowers aren’t
this malevolently sly.
But every time we try
to interview these two

they spit a toxic pollen at,
and often accurately into,
our collective eye.
Belligerent and blunt,
they make you dearly

want to pass them by.
We’d say don’t say hi.
Inaccurate, in fact,
to say they even flower.
They only glower.
