I’m Sorry I Ate Your Rose Petals

You peeled the skin off of a ripe plum tomato

With surgical precision.

I held the end up as a I watched you work,

Not wanting it lost to the trash below.

I’m sorry I stole a taste;

I imagined you were after the flesh

Instead of the skin.

You made a rose with the remains.
