"Astral Bouquet" by Joshua Norton

Black orb hurled across
Unfathomable distance.
Blue flowers bubble up
Toward flecks of light, encircling
A peach pit of a star.
Blue roses (real ones, not dyed or
Genetic modifications.)
Why this unnatural desire,
Fantastic hope of receiving an
Astral bouquet?
I've traveled the galaxy
In search of something impossible.
I've suffered loss of bone density,
Risked exposure to cosmic rays and
Never seeing my mother's face again
All in service of this most romantic quest.
I've ripped this Dragon's Eye
Out of its otherworldly soil
For you.
