Kitschy Kitschy Coup

soviet Kitsch_1



She’s more fiction
than sigh
-ence, more song
than strange. She’ll taser
you a small moon, a once-planet,
a cold meteor shower. Give her
an hour, she’ll rainbow her nesting
doll way into your union. There’s no
oxygen on this planet. Just a shimmer
-ing sun, waiting to be scooped up by
her spoon.


Awesome visual and prompt from over at Toads. Come play!

    Lovely wordplay as usual. I think she might be the further evolution of the girl in my poem.
