Upside Down Empress


Upside Down Empress

I am drowning in my sky
sacred pool of blue fire
with pockets of soft white sulfur
blur my heat wav vision
Upside down I swing
my sight washed aside
as the tide moves on
past and through me
uncontrolled
I live in the water of my dreams
while my feet stay dry
and weightless
on the prickly ground
How is it that I am Empress of my life
yet slave
or whore
to Fate
Yet what is the difference between
Royalty and Peasantry
except which way
they see
the sky
