Daisy Chain Tutorial
Sigourney Costa, Grade 10, The Friends School
The noble art of sculpting skeletons,
The crafting of limply lopsided grins.
Muss not her soft, moon-white mane
Which her gold face it does frame.
Snap the fragile neck of our floral-scented friend
So soft her silken scalp, pray don’t ever offend.
Brand a gash through complacent skin
With nail sharp as pointed pin.
Thread verdant spine through spine through spine
Each blossom child sleek as fine twine.
Subtle in air is the presence of sweet death
More fragrant even than a baby’s breath.
Weave skin past skin and bone past bone
Circlet of corpses I have sewn.
