Aisle nine

Written by: Iveren Ikyembe

In the best ride first 
through the finish line
Fighting tides with a 
patch on my right eye
Shooting taking cover 
from bullet and bomb 
clustered air
Floating spining and 
bouncing with gravity as 
my friend
Taking temperatures 
checking heartdrums of 
either plastic or stuffed
England Paris Mexico 
Newyork I've been to 
them all
New toy new 
adventure one aisle show 
off all
Aisle nine source of every 
fantasy in my sleep
The one path to whatever 
dream I want real
