• BURST!


    Notes: Yuzu. Rhubarb. Apple Skin. White Chalk. Pencil Shavings. Musk

    Characteristics: Sour-zesty, squinting into the sun, stemware tipped inwards, afterglow, bright light symphony


    in all grins, in all flourishes of pastel yellow

    my fingertips, yuzu-stained paper-thin

    cheery citrus (their physical comedy, rind slick with wax)

    in the drying shed

    you can hold them up

    as if it is the most important thing you’ve ever done

    each hue bright-sour, soft as chalk

    my back against the soft orange wood, listening

    to the symphony of the shapes (skin prickling tiny violins)

    we all wanted that glimmering light, their ancient formulas

    i’d rather you find the coldest glass of milk

    while the fruits rest under their own weight
