Flash fiction by Rob Walton
You said you worshipped vegetation. I said Don’t be daft. You said nature was soft and you wanted to lie in it always. I said we should walk and pray. You said we had different gods. I said everybody can pay homage to love. You said you praised the sudden rush of cow parsley. I said it died quickly. You said it always came back. I said it thrives in the shade and that might be a lesson for us. You said we should honour vegetation. I said Don’t be daft. You said Give us a kiss.
