She puts a squeeze of lemon in her drink…josyift 2022
and wears a long black dress just like a rose –
that long black dress that causes me think…
But I’m at work and she sits home alone.
I feel her sunrise kiss me in the morn,josyift 2022
I wake with gentle rays across my face.
She touches me with lips quite soft and warm.
But as she passes, gone is her embrace.
A lighter tea’s a better tea for me,josyift 2022
as gentle withers leave more life and flavor.
And so I sip it soft and gingerly
and let myself taste all there is to savor.
I flirted with a flower late last night,josyift 2022
where clever heliotropes pretend to dream.
We fell into a trance of strange delight
But flowers aren’t as faithful as they seem.
Like old perfume I forgot I hadjosyift 2022
and once smelled so sweet
But now, just stinks
Into the garbage
