kite strings and keys

my errant thoughts
keys tied haphazardly
to kite strings
sent afloat among
the thunderclouds
always brewing within
the hollow bone
confines of my skull

each strike sending
joules coarsing
igniting a whirling dervish
of lavender sparks

and sometimes
when my balance
is just right
i ride along the discharge
tracing stories
from the chaos of
half melted gray matter

staring at the ceiling
her smile burnt
into every blink
following the threads
to try and cobble
a working tale
from errant thoughts
lost daydreaming
as the keys dance
on kite strings of
coarse rope tied into
the shape of a heart
