pulling petals off a daisy

“This poem came out of Adam Crothers’ Ugliness Studio on bad form, bad language and bad taste. I was enabled to experiment and write well out of my comfort zone. In this poem I wanted to control the word (which I wouldn’t use normally, particularly as a term of abuse) but at the same time achieve impact. Hence the short form, blank space, and repetition.”
