Flamingoes

exciting her usual
placid peaceful perseity
the distracted white rabbit
allowed her access
to what was
previously impassable

placading the placebo
fear faded and her
sense of wonder expanded

as she shifted closer
with breaknecking speed
suspicions slowly seeped
from underneath
the seams of normality

flying without wings
in a parade of colors
disappearing smiles
in puffs of fading lettered smoke
questioned her reasoning

hesitating little
she tasted the other
smaller than the larger
previously sampled

swimming for answers
the edge crawled closer
with teacups and 3 card riddles
red paintbrushes and mock turtle soup

with a taste and a yawn
in a fluttering wind
the trial ends
experiment over
