Tangerine teardrops
Drip along
Fermented grape vines

A Sweating
Oak tree
Its carnival sap

Ogres barter
Pumpkin juice
A wounded raven
Swallows its seeds
For something
For nothing
For anything

A fleeting prism
Promises shiny steel beams
To withstand
A crumbling backbone
But fails
Under the asphalt pressure

Thunderstorms flood rationality
Blackouts hide the truth
Quantum physic whisperings
Melt hot wax
Dripping from deaf ears
Beseeching to hear
Distant trade winds
Previously evaporated by
The Pacific sun.
