Gathering Petals

Gathering petals in pockets
Like loose change
As if it will hold the freshness, the youth
For a moment longer
Pressing them against our palms
So the color saturated our skin
Smear floral tattoos over our bodies
So we can claim to be new
Once again
And we will dance in circles
Around and around the sun
So the horizon covers us
For a moment longer
We will be gods
Recreating the world
In mismatched petals
We keep in our pockets
