honeysuckle hyperbole

ardently awaiting his
e - a - c - h - a - n - d - e - v - e - r - y
1/26th
arranged into patterns
eliciting
slow whines
tingling spines
lock-picked minds
like cherished checks on an
erasable calendar
of memories

reminiscent of a junkie's endless search for another first

sweet and fleeting
as honeysuckle nectar
blessing virgin tongue

once tasted
forever bound
haunted by the bitter and beloved
afterglow
of his...
...verse
