Stars and Teeth Streaming in the Water

A Poem

Imagine if the stars
Had teeth
Sharp and gnashing in the dark.

Translucent
Paint on glass
That doesn’t stick
Easily disturbed and scrapped
These are the thoughts
Streaming
As part of your personal subscription.

Duke Ellington in the morning
On the Alexa
Making you want bourbon
At 5am
To move with the rhythm
Of the waterfall
Of the shower.

Seemingly no connection
Unless you look through
The lens of your life.

Ice cream is the solution
To every ailment
Prescribed by the 8 year old
But rather the obstacles
Flow down the drain

In order to
Realign.
