all i know is
i fall into a work of mixed media
land on a swath of pink sound
my toes sticky with acrylic apples
spit-polished with rhythm and blues
teepees whisper loose words
in wispy velveteen balloons
curly-cues of razor wire protect
italic slant of mushrooms
a bird examines me
finds me perpendicular
to blue perfume of hidden thoughts
i sneeze the letter P
skis lose their edge in summer
pen cuddles ink
four-toed feet curl into fists
perch on chocolate stencil
brown betty gone
the bird gobbles her crumbs
