Violet Electric

By Carl Bellerose

Fawn enters into the checkered
rooms of the cylindrical tube
sips serpentine cocktails two
colours in a mirrored glass cube

Dragon rose petals litter the
azurite crystal bar, violet flame
star light adorns the altar, fawn
reflects but can’t recall one name

When he asks, a grim voice mimics
as hooves rap upon the spiral stair
on each red step sits a lilac spirit
setting it’s smoke ring to ensnare

Fawn accedes, and turns into an evil sage
disengages from his act upon life’s stage

A lasting nightmare of terrors so malign
forever at war within his demented paradigm
