PORTFOLIO: Color Blossoms and Comeling Birds

DAHLIA

Interest grows not knowing dahlia

what color blossoms dividing tubers

eyes upward toward old stems

assure curled in white-tipped purple

moonrays or all-white glass-mask disks

roses cannot excel you thornless

pleasing comeling birds black-eyed susan

dahlia year’s-heads income the same

—Louis Zukofsky
