INCOMPLETE work. On my birthday, Nicole gave me a bright yellow Chrysantemum. Most people know that I love the color purple and I take any other gesture that is unpurple to be an indication the giver doesn’t know me well. However, new friends are given mercy. It is actually quite a beautiful flower and I wanted to remember how special the gift was and how warm I felt as the recipient. In this hot looking landscape, the flowers dwell over head, menacing or not, I am not sure.
