POPO2022 Day 28 — sun, rainbow clouds, burning legs

card 28 sun rainbow clouds burning thighs resized

when things go wacky,
light and dark harp they’re the same,
ask, “are we there yet?”

when things go wacky
surreal cracks; flaming thighs grasp
spiked faces balloon

light and dark the same?
rainbows blight to bloated corpse
revelations dance

ask, “are we there yet?”
perhaps lurched beyond return?
beg grace from cloud’s silver
