when melancholy
grows leggy, be ready to
pinch back, harvest the

tips of every stem, maybe
refrigerate for later

remember that year

remember that year
when one stem of a peony
cost an entire

piano lesson, how young
we were back then, how present

with each summer
breeze, warmth
walks, glides
down the manhattan
side of your body,
tapping out
a string
of morse code –
a blues ballad
with twin ellipses
