Singing Ceaselessly to Maintain our Existence

last night in
atomic transition
a lion with
Arthur Rimbaud eyes
whispered secrets
into my dreamy mind

with each new reveal
my body morphed to fit
a strange
new reality

an elephant with
butterfly wing ears

worm-riddled Joshua tree

scorpion tailed owl

varicose veined iceberg

galaxy faced frog

shark teeth thorns
on the long stem
of a budding yellow rose

quantum leap
after quantum leap

until
I became
the lion himself

fated to stare
into the mirror of my own
Southern Oracle’s
heterochromatic eyes

singing ceaselessly
to maintain our existence

until
I become
the secret
that wills Us
home
