Poetry: Insurrectionary Flower by Silvia La Rote


Silvia La Rote


Insurrectionary Flower


It begins here, in the wild. Setting

the stage: the water monsters call

softly in the pink air cups of shine. Here,

a maiden’s face is held like a pearl,

a fire under his furnace. She smiles and her

smile is the aim of a witch, it determines

the future, an outcry, its un-gloved hand.

These women do, these witches do, brewing

all returns to this pond at the end of the world

the Hydrangeas unfold into tiny holy stars
