Scrap Book

Pictures cut from magazines
And glued in notebooks
Private codes
Like wild seeds
So small
They go unnoticed
Fierce, tough
Hitching rides on
Animals and winds
Too small to chew with ease
Piercing tastes go unremarked
Brief perfumes
Dissipate in breezes.
This raw vitality is not
Marketable
It has no safety seal
No sell by date
Its nutritional facts are
Not certified
Yet we can not live without it
Studies show
Without brief perfumes
Without the joker in the deck
The Fool, Coyote we are
Not renewed —
Good only while supplies last.
Without the piercing taste
Too small to chew with ease
We can not bend
The way the grasses do.
Pictures cut from magazines
And glued in notebooks.
