The Animal’s Meat

A waterfall of spoiled ice falls out the don’s trade,
ripping petals, and breaking my stem away.

Do you have to be rough
when you water a delicate flower?  
Can you manage the soil, support
its growth in heavy, dire times?  
Why rub spices on the animal’s meat,
when you don’t have to eat the meat?
Why eat the animal’s meat?
Why break a delicate flower?  
How can you rip my petals and yank
my sprouting stem clean away?
