Palm Tree Dreamer

Wishing my eyes were cameras

My brain my personal photographer

Of cityscapes and architecture

Saturated whites and warm linen skies

Criss-cross lifeless arms hugging glass

Feeble shields against the ricocheting beams

Of lo-fi Coppola's "Virgin Suicides" sunlight

Curtains of dull brown and vibrant green

Low-hanging tendrils and high-flying sails

Above a sea of golf club grass

Or obsidian sun flame-baked hot pavement

While people fly through the sky first-class

Like seagulls parasailing

Symmetry of palm trees floating by

Wandering through Fort Lauderdale

While a guitar-shaped hotel grazes the sky

With its shiny neck

Saturated sparkling post-modern fairy tale
