y'hear that?

Photo by Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales click for more info


what you are about 
to hear
is the bubble wrap 
snap of 
sapphire encrusted 
shamrocks
surrounding ruby 
slipper shod
sacred hearts as they 
twirl like 
dizzy dervishes
until spinning 
themselves
into fine silken strands
that taste a lot like
grape kool-aid
and sizzle 
on the tongue
like pop rocks

tune it on in
what you are about
to receive is a 
full piece
of peter max whirled 
harmony
treat your head
close your eyes 
let your ears glide
over the scope of
the collision
