#67 (the space between his ears)

fairies

and rainbow moths

unicorns and snowfish

wordlings and tiny silver people

the space between his ears

he liked inhabited

they flew and rode and pranced along

around the spilled words

and the low-flying curses

navigating a path

across the ocean

of poetry


triangles

dancing before his eyes

blurred shapes

capturing his sight

the space between his ears

where everything

was a potential poem

filled up with sharp flashes

ripped from sleep

fairies, rainbow moths,

unicorns and snowfish

wordlings and tiny silver people

 went into hiding


the dark heavy blanket

of night

he wrapped it tight

around his mind

the space between his ears

went black and quiet and still

after a while

a candle started burning

tiny folks were returning

when sweet gloom

filled the caves of thought

and shadow verse

danced on the walls

that grew wider and

Morpheus’ kiss

left his lips

with a single

sigh
