venus

Fundamental, by Jene’ Jackson on her birthday, today, as she drove home down Colorado Avenue after writing all day.

Perhaps,

pungent as the cut onion’s night after night spray in kitchen curtains

pervasive as the toddler’s goo griming the minvan seats

tenacious as the smoker’s film of brown on bedroom walls,

Perhaps each love,

each foray into the land of the heart

each attempt, short-lived or long,

leaves its residue,

coats the inside of the wholehearted with lighthearted joy,

rosy, curious, prismatic,

Ready for the next foray, in this life or that,

pervasive

pungent

tenacious

Whole.

Perhaps.
