northern lights would be beautiful

if they weren’t in my eyes

star spangled splatter strangling like probes

Open Gate!

open like soft white petals

creamy velvet pads

gently unfold and drain these spiked stars away

while i think of toes and limbs

resting pain free

in the middle of a lightening storm
