the ocean always dreamed blue dreams

Intemperate Frigate on a Placid Sea

Where does it come from,
my passion-
burgeoning, bumbling, burbling,
purple, red, inflamed-
like the Red Queen in a fury
or a fountain
of frothy, frothing water
light as air and filled with color
exploding into universes within the hidden crevices of my brain
then leaking out,
joyously or morosely
like a thin, filthy mattress
slept on by a high-jacked heiress in a forgotten basement;
my pores shimmer with impending excitement,
my lungs heave orgiastically
with the thought of being alive and
alive and alive yes alive

    Sounds like you were having a good day. Not bad, but it feels like it needs more, unless you just want to capture a moment.

    I love the Whitman/Ginsbergesque "yawlping" and "howling" of this poem. It's always so refreshing to read something that celebrates lived experience.

    burgeoning, bumbling, burbling,
    Appealing alliterated trio, qimi!
