snowflake on your tongue or a scotch mint?

i always expected
fluffy snowflakes to taste
like a piece of fresh
mint -- recently plucked
from a full garden
that waited to be
harvested

desperate
emotions that yearn
to escape a dour
soul unable to emit
effective emotions
of ecstasy
& effervescence

is that the problem
of the individual
who experiences
those emotions
-- or is the responsibility
societies to shoulder? 

i mean after all
are we not accountable
to mankind on some
level or another?
