       in heaven I made no plans
       left fallen dreams to earth or hell

twelve seconds of release perpetually looped.
still the taste of sugared limes, of a half-
dissolved café mint sulking in the
dregs of a failed mojito, of love's first tequila.

was life the apex of evolution,
            the fluke statistics eventuated,
            a sparrow's midnight flight through a lighted meadhall,
            the journey to decay from birth's ripeness?

all these and more it was
you my dream

       in heaven the rose is you
