Scattered

what is it that makes me want to disrupt dandelions?

scatter congregates of delicate

into frantic disarray

just to see where they’ll lay

.

i have wild silver in my veins

scorched sublingual stains

i am an errant child grown

into a childlike woman

defining my own

..

the script of my life

shall be scrawled with charcoal tip

and when expunged

by the torrents of time

carbon ash, crumbled, finally freed

buoyant, in breeze swirling

with dandelion seed
