Blue Armadillos - Poem by Mike Acker
Black diamonds coruscate
through purple waters
in flooded landscapes.
Roaring, ivory horses
approach the edge of ruby hills.
Green-feathered eagles soar over
a narrow horizon. Only shimmers
of blue armadillos can be seen.
fishes ascend into deserts,
where bony, mane-less lions
chase shadows of magnificent
goddesses. Minds and myths
of lived lives settle into Saturn's brim,
but blue armadillos
are nowhere to be seen.
