builds cartwheels from straws and starlight
lengthens castles until they capture the beauty of a raven’s shadow
takes a tin-box tiger away from childish hands dipped in chocolate and ignorance
boils with more honey than milk
tickles the ivory synapses scraped from bent metal forks pointing us in new directions
grinds joints until they bleed kool-aid blood, sweet with pain
uncovers that bright green stripe hidden on a zebra’s heart — the one that pulses with the sky-high parakeet fresh from clawing his way from a cage
