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 and hardens into a sticky brown resin.

It tastes of bitter lettuce and burns with an acrid smoke that lays soporific charms on the minds of savage beasts.

It gifts the touch of night and a little death on the hearts of those bleached divers on that fatal arc who drink the poppy’s tears
