One of my Indie Ink Challenges was the prompt, “I dropped acid.” I was able to write something in time but I wasn’t satisfied so I kept tweaking at it. This is the revision and I’m much happier with it.
I dropped acid like I dropped water and
I dropped to the floor to drown in a sea of hallucinations
I drowned in Van Gogh and poetic abstraction
I drowned in “Blue in Green” as the saxophone
Explored the emotions evoked by a sound
Explored the effect an eight quarter note on my soul
And I never knew transcendence opened in G flat
And I never dropped water.
And I never dropped acid.
