by Corrine De Winter

Published in Issue No. 51 ~ August, 2001

Here come

the flowers of fever,

the chimera speak

of angel flesh.

     Always a sacrifice,

tiny frogs under foot.

Lisianthus unfolds.

It is time

the swallows sink south,

and meadows are ripe

with monarch survival.


the grapevines

are full of savior.

Under blood leaves,

no mercy.

We discover

we’re already extinct.
