I am melted ice cream
Floating with
A sticky spoon 
You are ice cold lemonade
Vivaldi's "Summer"
An enchanting moon

I am only Tuesday
And you are the Fourth of July

I am grasping for the ring
Eyes closed
Reaching tight
You are sailing on the sea
Gershwin's "Summertime"
In diamonds of light

I am caught in the riptide
To find air
You are dancing on the sand
Ravel's "Boat on the Ocean"
Laughing and unaware

For I am only Tuesday
And you are the Fourth of July

Devils leaning on windowpanes
Just eyes
And teeth
And tails

Fangs and scratches
Death and dread
Deepest fears unveiled

Crouching tigers, hidden dragons
Behind rocks
And roots
Of coils

Paws and fire
Strength and myth
Neither faith or hope is loyal

Circles spiral before your eyes
Nine levels
Of hell
And fear

Screams and grasping
Hands and nails
You guide will not appear

Shadows dancing in the dark
They wait
They whisper
They hide

Gray and darkness
Cold and chill
Their clutches deep inside
