you taught me how to make wishes on dandelions

dandelion

make a wish, you think.

the dandelion sways gently against the wind,

back and forth like it's caught in a current.

you can't bring yourself to pick it, snap the stem and rip it dead;

distant memories of someone's bright smile and soft voice:

if we kill it, it won't make our wish come true, right?

the grass tickles your nose from where you choose to lie

flat on your stomach, resting your head in your arms

wondering what was worth wishing for.

the white fluff looks a little like snow despite the sweltering summer heat.

make a wish, you think, make a wish, make a wish, make a--

you don't know why you're crying.

make a wish.

come back to me, you whisper.

the dandelion drops its bare head as the pieces of your wish are scatted by your breath.

make a wish.
