Lizards in the Leaves

Rustlings in the green....imagination, art, whimsy

No. 13 a little bit of synesthia makes

a little bit of synesthia makes

life interesting

and hard
to explain,

but i like
knowing the colors of letters
and days of the week

(E is yellow, Monday is red)

and seeing
the shape of dogs’ barks

(brown, amorphous and shifting)

most of them float
as though filled
with helium -
a colorless, odorless, tasteless
gas which, by the way,

is silver
and smells smooth
and tastes

like ice.
