You Don't Need To Remember
You certainly don't need to remember my smile,
often I don't smile, nor do you need
to remember my tears
for I'd never cried in front of people
except two times, each was for trivial matters.
Nor do you need to memorize my verses.
As for those sweet words like love and beloved,
spoken to you after we drank wine and ate olive on the spike,
as for those half-moons I splashed on you,
those second and the fifty dates
we never talked again
and those nights pregnant with aroma and soft glows,
I suggest you forget all.
You may also forget your hidden...
Water, you flow
with one oxygen two hydrogen
Up, to the peak of my thoughts, the tip
of my tongue, you flow, for the sake of flow,
for the sake of flow of life itself.
You are flowing up, not down, so allow me
to flow with you though I am
neither hydrogen nor oxygen.
A bloomed peony blooming I am,
