"Outside the youth center, between the liquor store
and the police station,
a little dogwood is losing its mind;

overflowing with blossomfoam,
like a sudsy mug of beer;
like a bride ripping off her clothes,

dropping snow white petals to the ground in clouds,

so Nature’s wastefulness seems quietly obscene.
It’s been doing that all week:
making beauty,
and throwing it away,
and making more.

"
- Tony Hoagland from “What Narcissism Means to Me.”
