electric fancyelectric fancy
The puffing jungle wheezes in thirst,
Cavalry drums hush the audience.
Teeth clenched tight;
white knuckle red face;
contorted brow flared nostril;
forehead wrinkles tense.
A build up of stinging sweat,
More rabble rousing;
teasing the audience.
a silent snap
- a bead of sweat breaks off the chin.
Hungry brown crackled lips grin
- Tasting the drop in temperature,
as the gods drizzle nectar and ambrosia
from the gravy boat clouds
The maestro signals the woodwinds.
Soft notes fall;
tiny kisses bring life back to the emerald umbrellas.
A smooth wash of excitement.
Strings join the woodwinds.
Thicker raindrops gush.
Bassist strumming buttermilk chords;
Dropping heavier beats;
Juicing the teat of blackberry sky
- brilliant white cuts the black.
Scribble scrabble guided by a thousand hands;
