Pamela A. Babusci,
always in control...
are there no more
for me to hand-pick?
& nowhere to go—
petals fall into the
she leans in for his
first succulent kiss
the one that transports her
to another world
she clings to his
of their hearts
how many times
can a heart break
unable to bear
the news of his death
