Magical Realism

The unicorn in a business suit
sat under a pineapple tree
smoking his cigar, and
playing songs on the flute

The look in his eye
was like raindrops in
a field of fire.

Perfection is perfection
is perfection is a mistake
running through life with you
is the risk that I take

The look on your face
was like a peach pit
dropped in sand.

The rollerskating owl
twirled and raced with silent
ease. Within my range, his eyes
laser beams of heat turned violent

The sound of his passing;
a dentist’s drill
through earmuffs.

I drift away, so tired
of my day. trying to cope
with my sleepy sugar eyelids
and my life of Magical Realism
