Synesthesia

Fireworking words,
Rainbow-cacophany
Of calligraphic ink –
It doesn’t matter the meaning,
Paint a picture-poem,
Hang it on my ceiling,
Let it drip
Cherry red, replace my lipstick,
Blackberry blue to splatter my glasses.
Meltedbutter words,
Fattening rambunction,
Melt crayonwax on my countertops
Let it smother
My pancakes in maple syrup,
My tea in honey.
Bake bread with letters and
Cinnamonsugar ink.
Let the poetry
Make me breakfast,
Dress me up, and
Put me back to bed.
