j a m

by Johanna May

In an ideal world
there should be at least
an afternoon or two.
Where you imagine
other worlds
bleak and apricot-less,
while the bowl
of your mouth
translates sweetness
to your mind

like an offering.

I always enjoy where you take me. "bowl of your mouth" is just a cool phrase. Loved the "apricot-less"
