Delirium

Delirium

written by: Rita B. Rose

 

Fade into La La Land
night shades Vallhalic eyes
pulls the parched tongue
dances on perspiring bones

A frightened moon
gambols across dry skin
rolls across my forehead
brows, breasts, and limbs
exhaled it sailed returned on a wind

Cresting forest firs and pines
caps snowy white sublime
I float past bloodshot mesas
bleached by the sun

And in a crystal mineral stream
mauve trout swim about
flying from my blistered mouth
as all trawl
to break free from La La Land
with me, as I struggle to get out!
