Resurrection
by Alicia Hilton

I thought you
Were dead.
Your roots
Moldering
Under the compost.
But I looked out
My window.
Saw not just a stem,
Two branches of
Tiny leaves,
A plump head,
Magenta,
A single petal
Sticking out sideways.
Rebellious,
Like a kid who refuses
To eat Brussels sprouts.
The next morning,
You were gone.
