Rose

by Rebecca Allison

Juliet,
Fourteen years forgotten but for one week. Your dreams, drenched in poison. A ring, severed by the ready blade. A rose by any other name, may not shed a tear. Your pain immortalized by a quill. Sonnets recited over your silent tomb. Applause reverberating about your coffin. Does the nightingale’s call still echo as the curtain closes?
