Blood and Bloom. Wilt and Overgrowth. Death and Life.
Following are six Romantic Modernist poems about vulnerability, mental illness, and the dilemma of growth and when to stop.

"I am a garden
Four days and this tempest is feeding me
Four days and my ribs are a hothouse, bursting.
Dead mouthfuls of roses. Blood and bloom essential."
