The Girl with Traffic Jam Eyes

Return from the past,

under marmalade skies,

between amethyst trees.


Cartesian coordinates;

worlds away from origin *

The girl with traffic jam eyes.


Under pastel paper clouds,

rivers of red flow

across avatar indigo landscape,

swimming in yesterday’s stench,

bumper tapping bumper.


Hands slamming on ear splitting, tooth aching

blasted horns

soul  melting bellows.


Tempers erupt in ferocious tornado grey.

Bile spirals through molecule rings.


The girl with traffic jam eyes,

Rainbow hair streaming like ribbons,

psychedelic sun glasses perched on her nose.


Careens  past the yellow lines  into space,

and morphs,

with tires, screeching and smoky,


shakes, rattles and rolls, amid glass rain,

crunches over dry pebbled earth,


Skidding straight into  tomorrow.

The girl with traffic jam eyes.
