Waltz on the rings of Saturn
inhaling the drift of Neptune
sand castles of tall gold walls
stand by the sea of tranquility
soft blooms of white oleander
softly steeps in your black tea
you devour crispy saltines with
spoons of cold Russian caviar
needle digs deep into the vein
ears humming in the key of D
I descry that black bitching sky
with a kaleidoscopic blue lens
from atop a grand Aztec palace
sits the wizard of the aging sun.
