We walk through the garden, barefoot. Polished rocks and damp mud underneath. There is no breeze here, nevertheless, silky petals flow and flutter, weightless. We follow the worn-out pathway.

Touching, we wade through the flowers. Bleeding as the thorns prick us.
Waiting to see what is watching. As we wait in the sunlight, they emerge.

Behind a fruit past due, staring. Nesting within a poison leaf, impatient.
Their breath on our necks, linger. We stand surrounded in the garden, intertwined with the flora, the fauna, and them.
