there is a fairy-

there is a fairy-
tale tucked into every
bite of a bonbon

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: bonbon

you once told me

you once told me
that you quit your
book club of
two because one of you
could never get your stories
straight, reading well
into the night –
no one
ever aims just
shy of fairytale

in that historic

in that historic
district, on the steps
of west twenty-
eighth street, a lost
slipper with glittering
tendrils beckoned
to be carried home,
nourished, reassured,
cultivated, cooed over

near the end, hope

near the end, hope
hustles about, lost
with purpose,
like an out-of-
body experience
looking for
somewhere warm

to cling to – the
tell-tale signs
are the accessories
left behind: a pair
of ruby, a pair of
glass, and that
storybook ending
she wore so well

on the evanescent

on the evanescent
edge of folklore
and fairytale,
between the shimmer
of legend and myth
,
we are always
practicing someone
else’s composition
of faith – perfecting
the sudden
trills, being stuck
polishing the bass.
and even when
we have achieved
the desired
articulation for
devotion,
the subtlest
stirring can fumble
the smallest
melodic gesture
