Lilac Air - v2

Sweet, intoxicating, alluring
spreading out onto the playground
the bush changing the air, its texture,
soft, subtle, a presence, growing
lilac air at the side of the school
calling, enticing the passersby
to linger, to drink, to soak in
aerosol nectar, a drug
sweet, lively spring perfume
a perfect fragrance,
rich with memory, with color
under a cloudy blue sky
warm this Wednesday afternoon
Living bouquet, immersion,
a balance of purple, of green
set off against, before, alive,
the warm red brick of the school
