Poetry Friday: Two Girls Staring at the Ceiling by Lucy Frank

September 19th, 2014 (06:00 am)
peaceful

Current Mood: peaceful
Current Song: In the Meantime by Sleeping At Last

In neon running shoes I race
through sand, sprint
through the rainbow
droplets of a sprinkler,
run straight up a waterfall,

Shoot out a purple cloud
of squid ink so no one
can see me jetting
through the ocean
on You'll never catch me! bubbles.

- from the verse novel Two Girls Staring at the Ceiling by Lucy Frank
