This is me, depressed1 out of my mind, 
 frailing the banjo, spilling red wine 
 
on the white 
 king-sized 
 
luckily-hotel's-and-not-my-
 goose down comforter, this is me 
 
walking and waxing nostalgic through the girlish shadows 
 of tall palm trees, the déjà vus 
 
flying through the scene 
 suddenly, like those three 
 
unnameable and therefore beautiful white birds. 
 This is me as a slowly-tearing-itself-apart cloud 
 
and marveling 
 at a fire palely and flamily 
 
emerging from a bowl, wavering 
 up through stones of cobalt glass. The air 
 
wavers back. This is me in love 
 with the beauty of blue glass in flames, this is me on drugs 
 
prescribed by my doctor 
 as I try once more 
 
to sneak2 into night's closely guarded city, 
 my hollow horse ready 
 
to wreak3 my demons4 and Blue Morphos 
 on the citizens of my sleep. I am most 
 
myself when flashing rapidly 
 my iridescent5 wings, drinking 
 
the juice of fallen fruit. Then again 
 look for me under your bed 
 
where the ugly premodern vampires 
 still hide. The undead and I are lying 
 
in wait. We are very interested in you 
 though this is still me. We are unstable6 and true. 
 
We believe in the one-ton rose 
 and the displaced toilet equally. Our blues 
 
assume you understand 
 not much, and try to be alive, just as we do, 
 
and that it may be helpful to hold the hand 
 of someone as lost as you.
