shiny power from

imagination’s station

bursts into dusty room

of beautifully tired mind;

ideas full-throttle steaming,

bells clang, lantern gleaming,

an archetypical locomotive

that sweeps any confusion

off flexing steel rails onto

sooty hardwood flooring;

while graceful barefoot

thoughts pose, entranced

by marvelous miniature

revelation which may

inspire fresh energy

for creativity; black

and white contrast

needs fleshing out,

expressed in muscular

tones of new dance steps,

art’s arabesque.
