Random Poem:

she says goodnight and turns her back

a quick breeze passed by,
made by her shoulders
and it had no smell.
then she closed the door
under the staircase
and left me to walk
back to my room.
why recall the breeze?
i'd rather forget it,
the butterflies, and
the reason for the slowness
walking past the ivy,
rye grass,
and chinese elms
back to my room.
