to dying sunset
salmon pinstripe veins
craters of a muffin moon .
Tarawera erupts pepper ashes
bomb Pollock hues
of fire lakes and liquid flames
spill across ghostly rocket trees -
Nature competes with Herself
on my plate.
Colonised Aladdin Lamp
grants Earl Tea and milking maids.
Sweetened with manuka cubes
mined from Pharoah’s resting place.
An eye-glass on a microphone stand
sings for its number 24.
