For Alice.

Amethyst rain cascades from the rich fluorescent sky
White lightning rush's down her blistering throat mystifying her consciousness
Vibrant golds, mints, and indigos swirl abstractly inside her kaleidoscope eyes, as she feverishly plucks hallucinant magnolias from the neon green shag carpet

Her mussy fire opal hair twists around her bony finger
chips of turquoise polish fall to the ground
Bright tie-dye veils the paper walls
psychedelic butterflies dance around her head
Her pale fragile body spins wildly amidst glittering tangerine fog, in sync with the ebony vinyl disk
A tart acidic fragrance lingers on her pink party dress. Fantasy becomes reality, in her surreal world of lethal euphoria and peppermint stick pies
