lemonade cupcake crumbs sugaring
my tongue, teaching me the value of savoring.
Sweetness is undervalued in the belligerent typhoon
of daily diatribic relations. Coldly
we bounce about our self-
indulgent desires. Flitter flipping through random
[e]motions until they ring, irrelevant, in ears that refuse
to welcome the softer textures of light
ly layered details.
Overlooked they melt atop the density of desire, hoping
this time not to get lost in the dementia of consume.
