465 photographs of orchids

At the end of 2019 my lover left me. The only thing she left behind was the bedsheet on which we had been sleeping together and a magazine with photographs of 465 orchids.

The mechanical motion of glueing paper onto fabric soothed my aching heart. My lover had once told me, I would never buy you flowers, but this time I got my way.
