“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically... I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me.... I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”-Anais Nin

Saccharine shivers up my spine
Shadow puppets staining my white ceiling
like Rorschach dyes
See what you want
to see.
There is something haunting about flash blubs
burnt out
in the promise of a merry-go-round
like years settling in the dust
as diamonds.
Butterfly wings push monsoons
across the map
ladybug skeletons sink
like dried leaves
and the zephyr pulls us all in
in one big
Worms weave their way through our mind
and the spaces between our
in the chain clocks.
