Mid-week theme for the Comicverse is FLYING! In honor of Ying the dragon, one of the staff of the comic shop on the final frontier!
In cups I drown
worried yellow dripping like hot wax into my lungs
when all I want is your skin on my tongue
are you amongst the liquid waves?
you’re above the clouds like airborne seeds
flying on wind
connected in quantum gusts
planting in my fertile mind.
The roots have taken hold
weaving infinite patterns into my skull
and life is a little less dull.
Will I be juicy enough for you?
My little tree whose soul is deeper than
and taller than pines…
grow upwards towards heaven and tickle
the feet of Buddhas
they will laugh and pluck your leaves
and as they place your esscence on their tongues,
peace will be achieved.
