Alchemy

Some part bitter root of regret
grown too long
in rocky soil with gnawing grubs.

3 parts sour Lemon, 2 parts Sweet Grass–
mixed well to taste.
Always pleasing,
despite pain to fillings and gums.

1 handful of Constance,
in full bloom
always found under covers
even during the harshest storms

Cook over moderate flame
with occasional passion
and vigorous stirring.

Serve.
