I want you to reach inside my chest, grab my heart
and squeeze it
until it shouts
so loudly, people turn to stare at me. I want you to dive
from the top ledge of my brain, somersaulting into the blue sea below
and a million ballerinas dance and twirl under the crashing waves.
I want you to look me straight in the eyes and whisper the words
even a scarecrow
I want you to lie to me in a calm voice and send me on a wild ride
through the heavens and forests, through the core of the earth,
into the third
ring of Saturn
until every known fact becomes a unique and colorful feather.
