sorry flowers 2010

Janet Kuypers
(poetry converted to prose)

    I bet you think a box of candy is all you need to make everything better and you’d still say i need to lose some weight, sure, feed me candy, okay.
    i love “apology candy” as much as i love “sorry flowers” and people at the office keep saying i must be a great girlfriend because i get flowers at the office but then i tell them that they are “sorry flowers” and that the worst kind of flowers are “sorry flowers” because you’d rather have no flowers if it meant that you two were happy all the time. and no one understands what you’re talking about. and neither do you.
    so good-bye.
