Over The Top-Brunhilda

Over the top,
exists a
windy desk fan and
a pint of pink
California
champaign-
ingredients
that takes
away pain.

Bringing a vision of-
painted blue swans
with swirly green goo,
chased down
by a cold
Mountain Dew.

Who has a need now
for a analog clock?
When it constantly stops
with the hands
stuck at half
past two.

That or
dirty blankets over
Soiled tank threads-
scrubbed with
towelettes
under a
tiki statue?

My baby is
now crying
for a sweet little
kiss from tender
Motherly lips.

While my youngest
eats roasted
marshmallows and
paints nine
minus one
planetary balls
inside
My daughter’s
messy room.

All this
to reassure
you-that
my Brunhilda
story,
a Visigothic epic
no doubt was
made in Spain
too!
