Poem | Jody's Notes

 

Even the vines lush

with attitude. I watch

the sweet of his gestures,

the flutter of her perfume; I pray

for overcast, the invasion of snowflake,

rootless flower. My coiling mind

waits: for them leisure is still jigsaw

with pleasure. But soon

flavor will be a locus: its essence memory.
