Lemonade

so melancholy
is this breath between us,
bittersweet. for we, in July
are melting snow.
already our frosted edges fused
and in every bit that draws together
suffocates a piece of what we were.

This time is best, someone told us
because it is new, and chemicals say
you will spin like daisies a while yet.
but it’s not easy knowing everything
has changed –
you will face loss,
and having gained the world
will bear it on your shoulders
until it oozes down like wax
and holds you.
