i'd like to think that the gods above also only attend weddings for the food. any thoughts on this piece guys?

spring (wedding cake and buttercups)

March 14, 2021


cherry blossom flutters like confetti
as wedding bells flit through the perfumed air

dew encrusted fields lie idly
sniffling and brushing their hair

bronze leaves rot like skeletons
as they bruise the pavement
like bare hostile branches
offering a helping hand
but giving a poisoned thorn

buttercups nod sleepily
drugged from heavy despair
they spill into a copper drain
mingling their golden hues with muck

patterned bed sheets flap in the wind
as nature’s breath tickles windchimes
and blows all bird beaks to face the sky

the sparrows flap, flap, flap
their fragile wings
and pursue the stars which slumber
underneath the fuzzy quilt of midday

but in the solemn night
those same lights twinkle
like the eyes of the gods above
they pat their swollen tummies
which are filled with margarine wedding cake
and pluck buttercups from gloopy sludge
and gleefully clap their podgy fingers
to welcome the birth of life.
