With a flitting blush, elucidate

Spread the love

Dried lotus seeds.
Like esoteric, simmer until fully soft and powdery;
every breath of his corroborates
to distinctive flavour
of pandan leaves,
stir gentlyβ€”
sweet potato flour
thickened by whispers,
a strangely delicious taste;
our lips speak
of broken boundaries under the flower moon.
