      We made a poem together.

      A poem as buoyant as a dandelion seed.

      Brightly polished

      like the moon we caught last summer

      a pearl in a seashell of time.

      A plush lush bloom of that moment.

      Raven bright, a starlight span,

      a dream

      but it flew

      it had legs, it had dew

      it knew nothing lasts

      not even the most dazzling poem in the world

      because words go down hill

      just like people.

      They tumble over the edge of their vision

      become even stranger.

      They evolve and convolute

      soon they do not know what they are

      or what they are saying.

      They go to heaven

      a heaven beyond words

      returning as small weightless showers

      of sunflowers

      into a landscape

      where the colour yellow

      is not just an idea

      but an entirely new flavour.
