“unfading”

I’ve learned

the weight of experience

is best left

camouflaged

among the tiny blooms

along each single branch

 

these decorative clasps,

tied around my waist,

are no mistake –

I carry glabrous artifacts,

worn whipping ropes,

left behind from

my favorite pioneer

 

draped in colours of

aubergine and

rich carmine,

often found in the

aftermath when

examining past rituals,

I lift my fingertips

to eat from these tails

 

my love lies bleeding
