Judith Pordon ‘Rose’

She was pursued by a throng of suitors,

as his one shy rose

wooed her

 

with idling patience

in tentative

low gear,

 

but when he accelerated,

boastful,

certainly sure,

 

he flew preoccupied

off an unseen curve

and never returned.

 

Now a sculpture

of twisted petals

dance in sardonic curves

 

around a shrunken heart

in a vase

without water.
