bliss

bliss, n.

is the taste of barley and beancurd,
the soft crunch of ginko nuts,
the bittersweet after-the-taste,
the reminder of grandma’s food.

dan’s partial submission after grooming,
sitting on command,
sniffing your hands,
the reminder that animals too can love.

neoprint off,
hose down,
scrubbed clean,
the reminder that the day has ended.

somber silence on the train,
noise the crowd creates,
final peace of mind,

the reminder that i am alive.
