life on Neptune

Neptunian Sun

Grey sparkling polyester
veiling sunlight to tiny rainbow
projecting an eternal movieshow
Sometimes I know where
the plot goes, over rockcandy
under champagne waterfalls
between idle fantasy and
Shadows dance,
flicker like candle flame
Points hot and cool,
dappling patterns
Enhanced, processed
we are art
Left to our own itinerant vices
we are madness
a safety valve
between worlds

In the agora
we bargain
for trinkets,
lush silk,
poignant spices,
drama and mysteries
from afar
Veiled spirits scurry
spread toxic honeysuckle,
sweet death and resurrection
Stalls of forms proliferate
Zombie, Vampire, Were Creature,
Human, Deity
Vendors calling wares
voices blending enchantments
In the agora, lost forever
choose well
how you spend your days
