Buttonhole Flower

A bit of brevity to snack on this Thursday. A petite pen request for this painting –“Alma in Red” by the talented Aaron Westerberg. Write 30 words or less to the image belowFeel free to pen your own 30, if it strikes your fancy.

My beautiful boutonniere,
fallen petal skin
pinned to her grandfather’s chair,
avoids my rebuttoning,
clutching stained cherry sheets;
she is displeased,
but I will wear her bloom all evening.
