For those who find the arrow of time
a little too pointy, who like the vine
are wise to the clock and yet contrarian
we are Wisterian

Our scandent tendrils, longing for purchase
transcendently melancholic, malcontent searchers
wiry and wary, desirously twining the aerie ruin
we are Wisterian

Our racemes are daydreams
wine-dark, sea-tossed inflorescent triremes
where the ethereal meets the subterranean
we are Wisterian

Although we are leguminous, we can have no peas
restless for the numinous, we can have no release
a travelers’ caroming caravan
we are Wisterian

Full of wist, sehnsucht, fernweh, momento mori
Sweet sorrow, lacrimae rerum, mono no aware
Somewhere between melancolique and ‘Je ne regret rien’
We are Wisterian
