[Rose Rosae; click for larger image]
"Rose Rosae"
by Alfredo Roldan

How do I tell you
I fear nothingness
how much it hurts

I miss the petals
of spent roses-
I miss the stems.

Don't leave me.

I will walk savannas
until I find you
I will hunt the gardens
of Ketchikan.

Sweet bamboo
give these words life-

make me unforgettable.
