slow down when you talk
I need to save them on paper
or pin them to cardboard
like children do with butterflies...

syllables spilling from you
haphazardly
confetti participles
sprinkling strawberry icing

I want to gather them up
arms full to splashing
then gingerly place them within
my violet treasure box

'til it's replete
with future memories
