Buttercup Blossom ii

her beautiful skin
brown as a Bourbon vanilla bean

and the fragrance worn
a flavourful phenomenon on its own

back where it all began
who would have known… still can’t believe we’re at it again

she seems grown
and I’m sure a lot has changed
but can’t say that about her taste
clearly she still has a thing for Goyard trunks and Birkin bags

still, when around me she keeps it simple
and in a powder blue Beetle we roll

cruising along the peninsula
John Mayer in the player
and we sing along to
The Search For Everything: Wave Two

intimate glances in between laughing at each other’s discord
and keeping our eyes on the road

    I feel you are in tune with mine as well. To me exchanging writings on a blog is a rich way for poetry to come alive. I love to write and then release my words to the wind, like casting bread on waters.
