the rose i have in mind

leave a comment »

In high school I got great pleasure out of pressing a rose from winter formal in between two pages describing the Wars of the Roses in my AP European History textbook. The book was very heavy and pressed its flatness into the rose, while the rose pressed its shape into the pages of the book.

In spring I sold the book and liked thinking that someone would find my little joke in the fall.

How lush the world is,                                                                                                                    How full of things that don’t belong to me –
