Scented Ink

I write in rain and coffee
stained half-moon paper smiles.
The cloy and cling of past
-life sting smoke. The perfumed
poke of pine. The desert after
a storm. The smell of snow
and silence. Indigo flow
and old bookstore breeze. The
wheeze of old pages, leaves
of history hope. I etch in
stretched out canvas sky
and poster paint stars, crayon
and chalk, the soft-talk way
graphite crumbles. The mum
-bled aromatic song of jasmine
and the earthy thrill of soil.
I till the page with quill, and
breathe in feathered phrase.

    This is one of the prettiest pieces you’ve written.

    The phrase “moon paper(s)” made me think of rolling the moon (in crumbled pieces) and dope-smoking it. 🙂
