Flowers That Die, by Gideon Halpin

Flowers That Die spoils the ending, but tells you to enjoy the ride.

In this collection of poems, Sad Boy is both protagonist and narrator, enchanted by beauty while seeking eternity. He crosses rainbows and falls from the clouds of love, the sting a reminder that it’s all for real. Caught between prayers and punches, Sad Boy searches for satisfaction in a world where everything fades.

In the end, he is neither sad nor a boy. All that remains is a covenant to dance in the sun until his face resembles a crumpled napkin.
