Dandelion


They cut the sky
And slice through
The moist earth
Leaving behind
A cracked membrane
Whose veins
Through which
Weeds weave
Biscuit tentacles
That squeeze through
To then reveal
The deceptive flower
Which time shall shrink
To so slowly transform
Mutating from ovulating
To now produce a seed
That takes to the air
With a sigh

Are things of the long ago;
