Peacock Feathers and Honey

Doused in honey
and caught in a tsunami of peacock feathers
we’re forever connected
a bond that predates most
of my relationships
and once in awhile
when I mistakenly travel back in time
and relive dark, dirty secrets
you help me find my way back
and we unearth meaning and purpose
and the novelty of it all
and it’s those moments that I cherish
they’re as fundamental to me as
preserving humanity
a sweetness akin to honey
not dark, but bright
reminiscent of peacock feathers.
