metaphorically defining attraction


The orchid
Lovely when aroused
Dead when it’s neglected
No smell
Soft to the touch
Parasite
To people who know too much
Decadence
To people who don’t know better
Hard to keep alive
Harder to revive
Lovely to those who don’t do long term flowers
It blooms when it wants
It leaves when it chooses
Sickly and weak
Doesn’t survive cold
It doesn’t survive period
But blooms again
After years of dormancy
