A Pearl Far Away From Its Shell
You have an innocent smile that touches my
shoulders. Vowels supported by darkness itself.
But i can can't see death pushing aside the
roots of life: Life is a long meditative walk
about why the smell of pollen reminds one

to have this feeling welling up inside you.
Know that i can put this no other way.
