Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

HeatQuake
madderhatter

Daffodil sunspots flood
 1
down your spine
 2
of poppy fields-
 3
greets windows
 4
and blank judges.
 5
California kissed you hard, honey-
 6
licked the salty sand
 7
off the back of your tired heels,
 8
bleach-wasted
 9
your locks into yellow straw.
 10
 
You're a disgrace
 11
 
Winter brought you to your hips
 12
in icy regret.
 13
Read:
 14
Young philanthropic blonde spinning a lollipop
 15
lusting on her white pills at the back table,
 16
popping hourly
 17
for her Orangina dream to materialize
 18
and spread her knees.
 19
 
You make me so damned sick
 20
 
Drive escapes, clutch undepressed,
 21
third gear never acquired.
 22
Stillness sets.
 23
She tilts the glass.
 24
Engine stall.
 25
Rollback.
 26
Freefall into a handful
 27
of white pellets,
 28
a gulp and
 29
four shots of bourbon later.
 30
 
Full of promise, you were
 31
 
A running
 32
or breakdown sequence
 33
would be a nice touch for this audience
 34
she thinks.
 35
 
You did it again.
