follow music
jade papers
follow the music
up
into cold thermals
but cold does
not exist
doses of gin and tonic
make my head spin
my perscription
engraved on jade papers
While I wear cream
you are violet
or are you yellow?
the sun is
tricky.
You give me orange
blossoms among curls
and I give you hearts
of dandelions to love.
after all
we both follow the music.

The author's comments:
Essentially a love poem. That's what it turned into at least. When flower and color are used to describe two people, it's often a love poem. I wrote it during science ("cold does not exist").
