Minnemingo Review


Yellow Trim                                              Madi Vander Ark

Black.
black sky shimmers
and quiet little clouds shiver in anticipation for day.


Then,
yellow trim;
melting, drooling into thrashing
pink.
oozing, fattening clumps of
pink
like the lard we scraped off our thick lamb stew.
pink
giving way to cool pools of purple base,
which dance silently to waves of pure mass.


A glow, no, a disgustingly bright light emerges,
pounding at the gates.
opening
birthing
writhing, to reach its little hands into and through this glorious blue.


Day.
