You Make Me Feel


Don Campbell
 
like a blue
butterfly
 
on a pink
flower
 
like a black
millipede
 
sliding into an
earthen hole
 
like a gray
fox
 
snatching a white
chicken
 
like a green
Godzilla
 
stomping on
the rainbow city
 
and afterwards
 
like water
on a sidewalk
 
evaporating
in the sun
 
like the wicked
warlock of the west
 
melting
because of Dorothy
 
so this is how
 
God felt
creating
 
infinite
universes
