Dried lotus seeds.
Like esoteric, simmer until fully soft and powdery;
every breath of his corroborates
to distinctive flavour of pandan leaves,
stir gently— sweet potato flour
thickened by whispers, a strangely delicious taste;
our lips speak
of broken boundaries under the flower moon.
(Lotus seed sweet soup ~ Chinese dessert)
