I saw the rose lying there, and I wondered what had happened.
Had someone left it there?
Or had they dropped it?
Had someone gotten it as a gift and rejected it?
Or had someone thrown it away?
I saw it there in the snow. It’s red petals amplified by it.
I wanted to know why it was there.
I wanted to know who had left it there.
I knew it couldn’t be a good story.
A rose laying alone in the snow.
There was nothing good about it.
But I wanted to know.
And I was distraught when I realized that I would never know.
Something had happened, and the rose had been left there.
And I would never know what.
