salted caramel / the clatter of dishes / soft music harmonizes with hushed chatter
|Butterfly Herbs on the 22nd of May
the clatter of dishes
soft music harmonizes with hushed chatter
under tin ceilings
older than the living who
after a year stuck in their caves venture forth
to sit as always
among bins of coffee and jars of tea
all seems normal
even the snowflakes in the early morning
gracing the hills
adorning the trees
