Magical Woman

by Venkat

in your eyes

my world spun hard

twisted as a dinosaur’s grin


by your words

it became a smile

crusted on a cookie jar

in my eyes

the world melted soft

furred on my palm’s back


by your words

it became a molten rock

crusted on a raging heart


in my eyes

your world spun hard

twisted as a dinosaur’s grin


by my words

it became a smile

crusted on a cookie jar


in your eyes

the world melted soft

furred on your palm’s back


by my words

it became a molten rock

crusted on a raging heart
