Flowers and a Poem for...the Murdered?

Flowers for Leonard Co
by Mila D. Aguilar

Never was one for
Phyla and chordata
Stomata and stigma
But yes, stigmata
That's what drew me.

If you had been
My teacher earlier on
Perhaps I would have
Loved Biology
Or Botany, at least.

But I guess
You were younger.
And we never met.
And now you're gone
With the offer of

These flowers
Which I cannot name.
Your murderers
Knew them better

You'd have been spared.
