Like a hummingbird
living on sugar water
stationary acrobatics
beats per minute
in bas relief
use the mind
like a river
not a camera

of crystals
like octopus ink
the glass pitcher
turned red
in the sink
I'll sit and sip
and thumb
my mental flip-book
the re-animator
peculiar flavour like
tasting a chalk drawing
the new day dawning
like food colouring
dissolving in the sky

The imagery in "kool aid" appealed to me. I wish I could write peotry like that.
