Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 090

Somehow it's already been a week since the last prompt. Is it just me or is this year picking up steam?

For this week's prompt, I want you to take the phrase "Ways to (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new word or phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem. Examples: "Ways to write a poem," "Ways to not write a poem," "Ways to avoid homework," "Ways to fall in love," etc. There are so many ways to come at this one!

Here's my attempt:

"Ways to kill a flower"

She loves me; she loves me not;
she loves me; she loves me not;
she loves me; she loves me not;
she loves me; she loves me not;
she loves me; she loves me not;
she loves me; she loves me not;
she loves me! O, marigold!
