Just Like on TV

pass the laudanum
it’s just a little geography
something to do in all your
Free” time
let’s sit and watch the cities bellow
glass & cars & flames

pass the ecstasy, pass the liquor
watch the time/ don’t be late!
rushing a little quicker get/
the spit off your lip and look into
the light for me

Yes, your pupils are dilated
they’ve consumed every centimeter
of iris left

Is the room spinning yet?
Get a grip/
It’s just a simulation



(Authors Note: now back to your regularly scheduled programming)

A Midsummer Union

Pixie queen in a coffee mug
bejeweled &
full to the brim with wine
a rarity, excellent color and clarity
(Fit for vintage royalty)
& iridescent fairy dust
shimmering her flesh and
wings ///
bound together with archery strings



(Author’s Note: For my best friend’s upcoming wedding)
