Cherry on top

Put cherries
in my mind.

It is late,
my ex-boyfriend

is on
another date,

and my one roommate,
isn’t shouting to his phone.

Put cherries
in my mind,

I have kept myself
away from pollutions,

as much as possible,
as a way to ready myself,

for the part I can understand,
the decorative bit.

When a great big hand
reaches down from the sky

and puts cherries
in my mind, as I say,

Put cherries
in my mind.

The cherries
are joy.

The cherries
are poem.

The cherries
are the sands of time

turned to confetti!
