Beakful | Becquée: one work a day -- I just wanted to add an extension to mgversion2>datura by offering a space to poets, artists, writers, essayists, reviewers who don't necessarily want to get involved in a larger project, but want, from time to time, to place some of their work outside.

Rose Artist by JD DeHart
On delicate petal, she
wraps the story under revision.
A tome on a stem.
She weaves her narrative
among the thorns and briars
of common life.
Whether it is bubbling pink,
painful crimson, or the mournful
color of snow, a collection of light
emerges from the bouquet.
