fragrance of dust

Plastic flower leaves stay green
roots of shafts in styrofoam
self sustaining, never changing
never needing rearranging
no watering, no wilting
no color shifting
no hassles no demands
sitting still unnnoticed
with a plaque and stand

Eying the calendar
for days on end
Sometimes I remember
to blow the dust
from the leaves and stems
