Cumulonimbus (18 of 30)

(dedicated to Prince Roger Nelson)

I could give 23 reasons
why I long for one-night stands
and the purple sky exonerates
as the world is malevolent,
scattering a dandelion far-off
from the ground in which it grew,
latching onto soil and rooftops,
hope and inspiration;
becoming a delicate, unique being
becoming something amazing
becoming a relevant little thing
waiting for precise temperatures,
with the right clouds
sacrificing its purple rain
to saturate a soul,
Enough sun to evolve
as the doves cry no more.
