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.
Translucent, transparent
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.

    Not even in deep south Texas where I live. Fantastic fantasy. (Report) Reply
