Wes Civilz

The Glass Vase

“Treachery” by Nismah Shargawi

The glass vase and its water are colorless as air

See-through, except
for one blue shocking tulip

The green stalk splits
in two at the waterline

Illusion’s tender blip

*

No one thinks I suffer

She doesn’t think I suffer

That thing doesn’t think I suffer,
that vase with its
smug
blue tulip
