lady la la liberty

Supermoon, New York, Julio Cortez via Magpie Tales

I look at that moon

like it’s another quarter

slipped in 
the smiling notch of 
my bank book
i can hardly lift 
all that hope
i make gravy wells
in clouds
for all my crazy dreams
but my champagne heart
has beggar’s 
arrhythmia
and i stubbed my toe 
on a horny back toad
them golden slippers
never gonna fit me now
still, i go on an’ howl up 
a mongrel rainstorm
down that yellow brick road
