Simple Wishes

If I had legs I would fly
music echoing around me
wrapping in slow looping circles
irregular warping orbits
wobbling horizontal lines
running like electricity
tiny roots of pale plasma
sound waves bleeding between senses
vibrating the threadlike spines

If I had arms I could sing
like a raven kissing the drunken moon
One leg hanging
careening arabesques
silhouetted or silver lit
in the brightest darkness we know

If we had wings we might think
toward the mood where hips flip
and a drum pounds around us
toes dangle toward the ground
hang on the warmth
of remembered melody
light and shadows flickering
the varying lick of firelight
dancing in the dark
