Mandy Pannett's not sure about this anniversary

ANNIVERSARY




she peeled off
the price

which he
had forgotten

to do and  
cut

the red roses
free

of their cellophane
but  

adding them
stem

by stem
to her

crystal vase
together with

the contents of the
sachet

attached

which promised to keep

them fresh


she wondered




how long



they could last
