M

M 3/20

Where are those flowers coming from?

I know that they are bought and sold
in warehouses in piles in Holland

But who is that person who prunes them
weeds them and
waters the root systems until

These things are cut and wrapped
in brightly colored tissue paper

Maybe some Dutchman
some straw-haired woman

In wooden shoes with windmills.
