Brit Lit in Spring

Fuchsia trees peek & perfume

at every window

confetti my classroom

satin petals whirl inside

float onto wooden desks

among hands holding Keats

shadows spilling into aisles

hummingbirds shower

open winged in chill rain

drinking nectar we made

sugar & water for melodies

Beethoven’s brooding joy

passes a collection plate

to gather missing romance

sold for cell phones

she texts all sad emojis

he tweets dark odes to Apples

they look for poets

lost in memes
