Midwest Massage

Vast Nebraska sky, 
sienna-hued droplets 
meld together 
forming dusk’s tapestry.
Towering meadow blades -
cool as creamsicles,
stroke my weary head and
tickle my naked frame.

Soothing northwest breezes
leaving Manitoba, 
slither through
a nebula of stars - 
gathering miniscule
buttercup petals. 
I see them 
being spun into 
a feverish night waltz,
whilst my body lies drenched
underneath the nocturnal shadow play
of placid moonbeams.

I reflect upon the evening’s
natural merriment - 
my private Midwest massage;
therapeutic services 
not rendered on the
sticky isle of Manhattan.
