Idyllwild

Everything here gets hot fast and cold fast

Morning here
is candied lemon rind
and helium balloons leaking
from the windows of ice cream shops
where people have enough humor
to eat lemon sorbet with leather gloves

Everything here gets hot fast and cold fast

Night is a black, silk scarf
carefully placed over the sky
exhales crystalize into smoke
painting portraits
of the good and bad stewing in your throat
boiling together
dark, warm, and candid
