I Want to Dance on the Moons

Olivia Velazquez-Alarcon

the timeliness of a miracle

from here on the skies are cluttered of acidistic balloons,

somewhere has my trunk grown man's feet and ran off from me,

so the island stitches another hula-hoop,

lemon-flavored clouds from under,

boogie-men, plus sea monsters abide in the abyss,

haystack mists from ridden plumes,

davinchy peacocks dine down with the wine,

i'd rather take you on a millennium of story tales,

wicked nights cape crimes of lustry,

swirl-yet-tumble within the flower devoured tents of the unlikely,

he'd brush off the feathers struck on my cheek,

what am i?

but the unforgettable mysteries?

can't a minx sail beyond a philosopher's reality?

never doubt a mask from peru.
