Ode to Tamara
ogeretla

we
 1
rushed in and out of places
 2
with bare glimpses of jellyroll planets
 3
full of fat frenchmen and crouching mimes
 4
dressed in candystripe green and yellow
 5
wooped crazy with silent laughter
 6
 
 
i pinched your arm with glee and watched
 7
your small white teeth sparkle and explode
 8
with chips of atoms stolen from
 9
the mall on the moon
 10
 
 
our rocket stalled in a crossroads cloudbank
 11
backlit by summer storm
 12
we caught ourselves on fire
 13
with the rhetoric of love minus zero
 14
gravity
 15
 
 
you didn't dare blink
 16
at the galactic dance where all
 17
the one eyed women wore the
 18
masks of  old gods
 19
and winked at themselves
 20
in a gallery of twisted mirrors
 21
cast in starsmoke
 22
 
 
still smiling
 23
limitless earth loomed up on
 24
the port side asking us to
 25
identify ourselves
 26
too late we crashed into a
 27
small cup of oolong tea and
 28
swam away in a steaming sea.
