Exercise One: douceur

I've only completed the first one so far, here it is:

 

“douceur”

 

so small

that it’s barely visible

yet its presence is overwhelming

 

one granule

is as large as a boulder in the Mojave desert

still,

small fragments of reality

and yet its impact is 

detrimental

poisonous

alluring

one teardrop and it melts

dissipates

i sprint to soak up its

remaining sweetness

a seductive glimmer

epithelial cells swell

absorbing its deceptive comfort

oh but its sweetness

 

 

Thank you for this class; I really enjoyed it.
