blossoming from the body of another

There remained a few graves at the deserted factory site
They were torn up, then there were puddles
Yesterday the wind blew all day long like a sweltering cotton quilt
Rain this morning-a tall stalk of horseweed looks down blankly
At the ground, blossoming from the body of another
In that incarnation there is no pleasure
