Astral Traveling

by Stephen A. Rozwenc

Astral traveling
Between breakfast and midnight

Embossed shifts
Drift in seas of ecstasy

Ribbons of Tuareg wind
Color rainbow valleys

Dandelions nest
In firefly constellations

Flamenco tree toads
Croon spiritual nipples

Drunken gods burp intelligence
Effulge recompense

Free will descends like testicles
From sky born luminosity

Civilization's little whites lies
Paddle never

Karma trauma vespers
Soothe Chinese tiger monkey drama
