Poetry

China white blossoms
star-tipped by a passing shower
wave silent hello to a passing dog
oblivious traveller searching for snacks
left behind by privileged millennials
exchanged for avocado toast
careful not to drip on designer jeans
while tik-tok watches.
Blossoms swirl pell-mell
in a sudden gust
sniffed by a passing dog
then left for a corner of avocado toast
star-tipped by a passing shower.
