poetry and prose about place


leave a comment »

rose heroine




her hair

is a stroke of pink

on the brown audience


more compelling

than the script

or the decorated stage


not surprising to see

her name on the program



in black but for the hair

even her lips

implore the audience

to pardon the difference


she, the heroic one

not Romeo

or Juliet


not the dead

but the left-behind



All my best.

Staying safe,
