of what happens to the bulbs

underground, curled up below

the earth like oversize snails,

becoming brown and brittle

after a life in yellow dresses.

–Excerpt from “Afterlife” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective 2013). Published in Front Range Review, Staples, Roanoke Review.
