Metal Humans' Metal Roses

When metal humans have metallic desires or tinny regrets or fusible fascinations, or when they experience geologic melancholy, they give each other metal roses.

Entire bushes of them grow from the debris of the metal human factory and because they emerge from the discarded pieces of emotional robots, they too exhibit embryonic feelings.

The roses may feel the very first cellular vibrations of excitement or despair, for example.

Sometimes, suddenly, for unknown reasons, they wilt.
