Poppy Tears


The ancient Vedas

Describe the poppy as ‘heart pleasing’

There is no more apt description

The thin white latex

Leaks in milky droplets

From the poppy’s skin

Hardens into a sticky brown resin

That tastes of bitter lettuce

And burns with an acrid smoke

That lays soporific charms

On the minds of savage beasts

And a little death on the heart

The touch of night

The recreational suicide

Bleached divers on that fatal arc

Drink the poppy’s tears
