My Favorite Things

spiked white hair, Mohawks
pale skin worn like leather
perched on the high wire
all birds of a feather
low flying night birds who clip their own wings
these are a few of my favorite things

spike heeled stilettos
carve pathways like dark fins
fish-nets that snag barracudas in shark skins
fish fingers touch on
a few of my favorite things

jagged cross rhythms
squeeze sweat out like lotion
oozing loose limbs in perpetual motion
two fisted gymnasts that jerk without strings
these are a few of my favorite things

when the heat drops
when the beat stops
when the silence drives me mad
I simply remember my favorite things
and then I don’t feel so bad

morning, sunrise
sleep crouched in dark corners
black veiled mourners
sleep ‘til the night air revives
all their favorite things
