Poppie by Tony Pena

In the honey chocolate
expanse of your eyes
the husks of your tears
seize like cut seeds
of opium carried East
on flurries from the Lakes ,
bearing such a bounty
of beauty and courage
but to leave one craving
to share in your sparks
of spunk and revel in
the absolute pleasure
of inhaling the art
of your life so potent
in spite of the miles
of mountains between.
