I am always in awe

I wish I was so


like the Watermelon seeds

And I never bothered wiping up my fears and hiding the

baby blue

printed napkins,

dropping them into the depths, between all the

trash in the waste bin so people wouldn't find them.

I am always in awe at our rituals

and habits comforted by time

And the way the Japanese place so much

significance in sakura

And how every person has a

sacred grief

And how all the apple peels

that are thrown away

return to us in trees,

in that endless cycle of peels

and skin in plastic bags.
