interstitial - II

the desert
it is
that makes
the dessert
so sweet

interstitial - I

more important than the thing itself
it seems to be the space
within which it is nestled
that makes one appreciate

the silence and the pauses
in the journey 'tween the notes
spice of anticipation
song exceeding what she wrote

the absence of a lover
punctuation in a play
the rest between the courses
cleansing taste of the sorbet

reflection bred of scarcity
matures experience
from must to wine requires time
desire heightens sense

a fundamental truth exposed
within the cosmic score
in matters of fulfillment
it is clear that less is more
