To taste These Sweetfruits
in the Wind
Again/Again……
to sip these Nectars of

that flutter/Shudder/How Sweet/Heartbeat’s
Lyric/Frenzied Party/Terror Seeds these
Fruiting Bodies/Beg to Pardon/She’s
not Suited/gorgeous martyr/Beg to Pardon/Sunlit
Dewdrops Splashing Harder/Beg
to Pardon./…Whirling Petals in The Garden/…
Shotlick…/Sweetstick…/nervous Beauties in
the ring/…..Beg to Pardon/Bursting Flowers
In The Garden/…Light like Angels/Life like
Angels make Me Sing… /and Now
this Tale has Taken Wing/…….
