the darling buds of may

if i could be
i would
and sit gently in May
and not burn

but the season is sharp
and hot with memories
of time that would end up
standing still

i scramble the letters
and spit out the pieces
of restless hope and naivety

and crispy blue and puffy white
don’t smell the same
as now when i visit your grave
