Heaven Today

Turquoise-dipped satin sky
Hot coral nails clinking on
Lexan polycarbonate 31,000 feet high
Geode layers & sno-cap mountain labyrinth
Candy-coated Murakami welcome
I saw heaven today

Golden white, honey light
Opal peace, soul suspended
Neon signs equate nervous system activated
Joy—a waterfall flow
Lilac thought, bubbles
I felt heaven today

Metallic synth beats mixed with palm trees
Golden-laced tone
Xylophone cadence percolates espresso’s origin
Disco hums in a burgundy-glazed lounge
Effervescent seafoam glide
I heard heaven today

Korean pear bitters with a light lily mist
Charred pork belly melting
On my tongue which
Warm marshmallow matcha kissed
Avocado fluff & pickled radishes
I tasted heaven today

Polished emerald sand glass on a rainbow mountaintop
Screen door spark in a desert city
Grapefruit-lacquered icy glass
Your soul, next to me
Aquamarine and mica treasures in Chicano Park
I touched heaven today

Dust-trapped memories in strangers’ book pages
Coconut water fountain with seaweed breeze
Carne asada sizzle dripped in corn shell home
Petrichor dreams, vanilla cream
I smelled heaven today

That’s heaven today.
