Sherbet tangs of inspiration,
Spun from skeins of susurration,
Dreams unfold the mysteries,
Hypotheses untwist in me,
My mind alive, a fizzing fountain,
Bubbles forth, the magic mounting,
Crazed cerebral chemistry,
Uncorks, explodes and flurries free,
Oh, I could span the world right now,
Look closer, and I’ll show you how,
Come watch the needles jiggling,
Electric spectrum sizzling...
And look! An arc of artistry,
A powder puff of vibrancy,
That shimmers in the sparking air,
To light my thoughts and lead you there...
So hurry! Take the trail I’ve made,
The fresh pearlescent path I’ve laid,
For like my mind,
It soon will drift... and fade.
