the scale of things to come

a butterfly alights
mirrors the phalenopsis
under golden lamps
consciously cozy
and scented tea lights

the chai latte lullaby
and faux memorabilia
of India
and of Paris in springtime

how they twist and twirl
pierced by the pin
collected and etherized
chatter frothing over pearly teeth
born from brace

the richter scale of little things
of ragged edges
