tastes like chicken

walking home today from the drugstore/post office
with hydrangea stamps in my bag
i was serenaded by birds along the curving streets of Gold Bar
blossoms popping out too:
pasque flowers
daffodils
hostas
and two tiny pots of tulips that looked a little
too good to be true
silk flowers?
in the way that 'silk flowers' are plastic flowers
with the texture of silk
a little petroleum in the mix
or maybe just a measure of my cynicism
my reluctance to clap my hands and believe
in nature's perfection

where is tinkerbell when i need her???
