Saffron (Or The Spice Of The Prophet)

saffron (or the spice of the prophet)

saffron burns like a spice not meant for human forebearance
lilting down the pipe of open dreams
dreams meant for listeners and not for speakers

it lofts through the streams of blood like a boat on a swollen river
kept aloft by its nature
nature meant for speakers and not for dreamers

it burdens the stomach like so much powder
an incense for food
food meant for dreamers and not for whistlers

it keeps its fancies within the frame until it can no longer
pent up no more by my design
design meant for whistlers and not for givers

an assignment for givers and not for takers.

d. wilt
