.142 [esperanza]

it's been days and
she's barely crossed my mind.
food is returning to the tastes
i recognize and enjoy.
maple, fennel, creme de menthe...
the milk in my coffee no longer clouds up in effigy to her.
i've started to enjoy real jazz...
enjoy the sound of live music —
enjoy the company of live musicians

not a woman -
not flesh and blood -
a coded word.
a complex concept.
making the
simple ritual of beauty
like the myth of permanence or
the shine on the sun
