BLOOM

Today, the grounds

opened up

with notes of blueberry, rustic sugars, and dried peach.

Revealing its ethiopian descent.

So too, the earth

opened up

with notes of sun, colour, and life.

Somewhere,
A gamer takes aim and watches
The reticle on his screen expand and retract

expand and retract
expand and retract

With every click of the mouse,
A pull of a trigger.

Somewhere else,
A pull of a trigger.
Someone is watching someone else’s chest

expand and retract
expand and retract

retract.
retract.


Isn’t it funny
That the blossoming of life
And the taking of life
Can cause the same puffy eyes and running noses?
