In, “Invisible is Perfume,” I used to help mother tender the flowers, she’d grow them from fingertips, potting soil, and seeds.
In, Invisible is perfume; they didn’t grow by themselves. A packet was full of pieces. A package of yesterday’s dropping from a stem or old dried flower. No, it was the look in her eyes, and how she’d scuff the dirt here and there.
It was the old tin enamel painted water pot she’d use so delicately. She’d water with love. I could see it in the way she would tap, then pat with wrinkled hands. I would just watch in awe how she would grow GOD from a seed.

Invisible is Perfume
If you see flowers in a garden,
there must be a god,
filters under a gaze— black and white.
Colorful sphere sheets in the wind.
Invisible is perfume.
My mother told me never pick them.
A soul dies every time.
The color stole leaving a dark place.
Such romantic notions.
She loved the pink-purple kind.
They reminded her of hope.
They stood sporadically middling alongside
the railroad tie and gravel.
And from gray splattered raindrops were colored pieces of god.
