Are there still bougainvillea and hibiscus in Tela for me?
Do woody vines still blossom achene?
Will midnight whispers still buzz above suburban lake?
Or have we just destroyed it all for goodness sake….!
Will scentless, morning skin still make us lose time?
Can quiet mornings still cover our bed
or will they just mine?
Have the things we shared
just vanished away
at the insistence of night
and the mockery of day?
