Purchased a flower the other day. But what stands out after the initial floral impact is the wool coat. It already seems foreign, distant. It must’ve been eighty today. Too much for a jacket. Too much for my current haircut.

Admittedly it was a flower purchased on speculation. Its breed chosen through various parameters of intention and expert guidance of the Parisian florist on hand at the time. A good single bloom indeed.

Walking with a flower changes everything. People see you differently. They see you with a flower. It carries a definite visual weight. There’s a certain confidence that comes along with it. I will say the created packaging and the flower itself were not optimized for being held over somewhat lengthy walks. No handle, no comfortable angle or contours with the hand. But alas, such it is.

Concrete’n temporal color is what we’ve got.
