FLAVOURS See this dancing puppet Soaked in Pernod and black. Aniseed eyes in neon reflections With a wish for a soul in the half light. These eyes reach for breezes For glances beneath mascara Where the scent of red wine Carries on glossed breath A velvet slip across my cheek. The promise of the touch That would brush loneliness With stained sheets. Look away. Lock eyes. Fascination holds The taste of unknown colours And this short-term thing Has always been anathema. But needs are relative Fluctuating moral weights Dependent on blood-alcohol levels. And the morning will bring regret In one form or another So I'll ride shotgun with my faith And drink in the flavours of the moment. . Bring a friend... . . .

9 random things most people love ft. why I love them - 1. Winter - not for it’s cold. not for it’s snow. not even for it’s cozy additions to the wardrobe. but for the way it makes strangers huddle a little tighter, while waiting in line for mugs of pumpkin spice. 2. Beaches - not for the horizon. not for it’s waves. not even on the sunny days. but for the way laughter sounds, just a little more heartfelt, when echoing through conches and cockles. 3. Black - not for it’s emptiness. not for it’s power. not even for being scary to one and elegant to another. but for having in it, just a humble presence, of every other color. 4. Elephants - not for the ivory tusks. not because they know to mourn and cry. not even because, in every sense, they are better than you and I. but because they are always up for cuddle sessions and I could use one of those right about now. 5. 3 AM phone calls - not for it’s vulnerability. not for it’s softness. not even for the days it makes distance looks powerless. but for the hope it brings, on the darkest of nights, that loneliness can be lost, one call at a time. 6. Cacti - not for being thorny. not for being size friendly. not even for being a desert bred’s favorite trend. but for being relentless, even on days of absolute neglect. 7. Quaint cafés - not for the chaotic all nighters spent with friends. not for the quiet early mornings spent alone. not even for being the only place that serves it more bitter than my ex. but for making my failed first dates feel a little less tragic and a lot more filmy. 8. Love - not for a person. not for a place. not even for the times my heart felt too big for it’s space. but for the idea that a four letter word could be the death of a 7.53bn sized race. 9. Words - not for the writers. not for the readers. not even for the love letters sent across an ocean. but for how, even after 1.8mn years, there still isn’t enough to fully express every human emotion. . . . . . #microfiction#poem#poetry#prose#shortstory#englishpoetry#englishprose#writer#writers#writersofig#writersofinstagram#writingcommunitiy#writingcorner#writinglife#wordporn#wordplay#musing#creativewriting#poetsociety#ttt
