Calliope/My Ex: Love/Trouble Maker, XXIV

a purple rose
tattooed on my ex's bosom
we used to sing
California dreamin'
on such a winter's day

Calliope/My Ex: Love/Trouble Maker, XXIII

my poetic mind
emptied
by snowy loneliness --
I'm hungry
for passion fruit

Atlas Poetica, #18, 2014

Note:  Passion fruit originated in Brazil and was introduced in Taiwan by the Japanese in 1901 during Japan's colonization of the island. In Taiwan, passion fruit can be harvested from June to December.
