Rosemary

Respite rests:
seen, known,
gratuitous
in warmed honey –

but more pleasure;
as we know,

is derived
from angry welts
that will rise
from these ants’
cookie cutter bites.

Shun warm cocoa;
outstretched arms,
shrug off blankets

as your fingers curl
around
the snapped javelin –

But before
you proceed,
I should ask:

what on earth
will that quivering dart
offer its wasted life to?
