Galacticosm

Galacticosm

By David R J Sealey

 

Falling

an endless chasm yawns below me,

forming

a bright yellow platform draws me in,

incorporating

into a geared mechanism, a chain

climbing

to an emerald island suspended in the sky.

 

Onwards

hop down onto floating stone blocks

defying

the pull, drags me on to a gold coin

shining

glimmers and vanishes in my wake,

tumbling

into a star shaped halo, and away.

 

Landing

both feet first through fungal skull,

standing

in a corpse that disappears and crudely

dancing,

crushing sentient beings underfoot and

laughing

before jumping up and away, off the wall.

 

Leaping

out of a ragged hole above the clouds,

chancing

that they may hold my weight then

running

above the horizon; a ship appears,

pirates

of the blue skies making haste my way.

 

Firing

cannonballs tear towards me with a grin

finally

I find a flower that fans flames at my whim

timing

my jump and catching, I slide down the mast

unleashing

terrible balls that burn through decking boards.

 

Screaming

the great ship tumbles towards the ground

seeming

to freeze as I catch sight of a rooftop and leap

scheming

I slide down a green drainpipe, dropping through the

ceiling

into the boudoir of a scholarly mushroom.
