prisms of you turning
into river water

    kaleidoscope...
    it moves, motionless
    a green light

    kaleidoscope
    letting me let myself
    go to pieces

    little hands dropping
    colorful bits and pieces
    new kaleidoscope

    colors of the rainbow
    down the hourglass --
    sand trickles

    statuesque bod
    melting in a kaleidoscope...
    last nights fallen snow
