A magnesium salsa
of mild dandelions
licorice weed
and humble bees

Save Johnny Appleseed
He’s married to the serum of truffula trees
watch him here and there staggerin’ ’cross the sky
Far up above in a bicycle-powered blimp
he’s sure as Haiti, one heavenly boy

The author's comments:
I want to remember the sureality of the scents familiar with romanticism.

Have you ever read T.S. Eliot's the Wasteland? It's fantastic, as is this poem. Something in this poem reminded me of that one, for some reason...
