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
