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
