through pestle

spires and mixing bowls of

people-cobbled squares, misanthropic

white-faced mimes chase harlequins and columbines, who

leap and bound their free dance, of hats and

hoops and abalone ears

with rainbow

innards and

rainbow eyes that filter

famine flood and murder--- a constant

whirl of percolated minds and lost awareness

pulverized in kali bags, that are

dipped with liquorice straws

and then licked

 

 

Sherbet, kali (Northern English, pronounced kay-lie) or keli (Scottish) is a fizzy powder sweet, usually eaten by dipping a lollipop or liquorice or even licking it on a finger.

As chilling as it is sinuously suggestive ... I have no doubt that Kali comes in to it (lost awareness/ pulverized) as well as the more homely kali bags!

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

It definitely shows here, Benjamin. :wink: Image and symbol swirl in a dance that is grotesque and significant!
