twenty-one lady

every twenty-first

every twenty-first
wintry afternoon, allow us
to storm a lemon

poppy seed castle, fingers
glazed, mouths sweet and victorious

meeting savannah

i am delicately

i am delicately
peeling into
this memory i have
of you – how we
rarely had
lychees
in our youth
unless
you were visiting –
maybe you’d carry
with you only
a small bag of
the sweet fruits,
and still, it was
up to us
to peel away
the tough outer
layer, past the inner
membrane,
to get to
the unforgettable
part, the stuff
of memories
