  • Roses unopened

    Roses on high stems
    have withered unopened.
    Heads of every size,
    red rose-heads have withered
    on high, thorny stems
    above the high walls of the garden.

    We've arrived
    with strings and drums
    to sing the histories of roses
    withered on thorny stems,
    like poems stalled
    in withered notebooks.

    They wither unopened
    among thickets of thorns
    that sprawl above walls
    piercing the sky.
