Sleepy Grass

Standard

*

pensive hazel eyes
flickering around
the night where

perfumes sail to
the clouds away

from the cracking
tiny sound of bare foot
on sleepy grass

California Notebooks, 2014

Standard

*

odors and perfumes
how do we discern them

can we possibly ignore
the power held by this
one sense we ought to be

in wonder a complex gift
bestowed freely on us

what would be the
best smell for you

just before dying
to make the severing
less difficult

freshly mowed grass

citruses blossoms tall
waves of the sea the
skin of your beloved
