The Cellist

His cello
Her violin
He tunes it
He squeezes it
Perhaps it’ll change
Perhaps it’ll become a violin
A violinist matches another violinist
She’ll lay her eyes on another violin
His cello is still a cello
She’s still the tallest violinist cellists can never win

The Delicious Berries

Some flowers red
Some flower violet
Some berries delicious
Some berries poisonous
Red flowers are not red
If there aren’t any flowers violet
Delicious berries are not delicious
If there aren’t any berries poisonous

The Moth and the Fire

I’m the moth
You’re the fire
I’m attracted to the most skillful liar
I’m the fire
You’re the moth
Your life will always be covered by layers of froth
Love is the fire
We’re the moths

The Kind-hearted

She must have forgotten
How generous she was
She must have forgotten
How kind to me she was
Giving is not something she knows anymore
Distance is everything she offers as time falls

The Groom

She is here
Her him is here, too
Her glossy red lips, charming
Her dark crystal eyes, more charismatic than anything
She approaches
Bronze hair in the air
She leaves him for me
His hands in his pockets, eyes on her
‘Congratulations,’ she says. ‘Make her happy.’
‘Thank you,’ I reply. ‘I’ll make her very happy.’
Her smile, her eyes, her voice, her scent
As lovely as yesterday, as perfect as her man

The Guest

The bride is beautiful like an angel
Gold, diamond, emerald
The luckiest woman
To marry the most wonderful man
I hug my dearest darling
He rubs my nose with his
How thrilling it is to participate in the joining
Of the luckiest woman and the most wonderful man
Accompanied by the best man of my world
Two perfect couples, one amazing evening
