Cinderella Reconsiders

Take it back
take back all the falderal
and friggin’ fiddle dee dee
take back the mad murmuring
of ten minutes ago
this glass slipper
shines like the stars
as it sails high
into some kind of
wonderful midnight
catching a thousand crazy
diamond dog dreams before
landing violently, shattering 
quite rightly into millions
of impossibly everlasting
plastic snowflakes drifting down
he Spanish Steps
scurrying like white mice

into right angles resting
ready to pierce soles unguarded
until sweeping arms
ferret them out of little corners
and into the stardust
dreams of faraway lovers
Rene Foran ~ March 2011
