The Rise of Fall

    by K.R. Copeland

Fluidless hydrangeas droop,

like students’ heads

who do not know the answer.

The moment itself hangs, ill-fated

hive from fiery Myrtle —

emptiness unbuzzing

through the sunless hub. And yet,

I am undeniably alive!

A pulse, impulsive,

purple rise —

a shadow on a hillock,

my only wish that you were by my side.
