Paper Flowers (Imaginary Birds)

Cover Image

In the springtime
our double hunger
consumed us

simple desire
and the want of
something permanent

something that sticks
in the throat

like candy floss

when summer came
our emotions ran wild

darting after rabbits
and butterflies

always trying to catch something

fall brought us,
back to earth

and winter
was contemplative

and fiercely determined


the year spun around us
as I lay in your bed

dreaming of paper flowers
and imaginary birds

until it was valentine’s day

I smiled to still be here

I smiled to still hold
your heart
