The last huge rose of Sumner Road

The bittersweet,

red orange berries,

black-edged and

stark, are back.

They will last

through winter

if picked before

the frost or snows.

You pick pretending not

to see the fragile rose,

ignoring the symbol

of love that goes.

You gather bittersweet

and not the last rose.
