Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

Sarah Adie

she combs her hair as if
  each strand contains a piece
of a prophecy:
  noble and purple and green,
surrounding screeching trumpets
    with the sublimity of how
her mouth moves
  when her words move into me;
each strand forcing me into a
  rainbow-colored shoot
with twisted limbs
  landing in a room of plastic balls,
a seraphic wonderland.
    each and every strand
of which i could count those very nights
i spend kissing that beautiful,
  adventure-ridden mind.
