Commissioned by ARCO Collaborative for “Alone Together” Written for Jennifer Koh during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A fragile Spring:
shards of petals
scatter in panicked gusts.

Over the coming weeks
they will harden into lumps of glass,
sinking into the earth.

the season is no longer soft;
we find cracks in everything.

– Tonia Ko, April 2020
