Beyond My Wildest Dreams

Woke up in a sweat
Tripped in the dark
Made it to the bathroom floor, at least.
Threw up.
Much to my surprise
An enormous diamond shone through the mass,
And slippery pearls…
Star sapphires, emeralds
Handfuls of tiny, glittering garnets
Watermelon tourmaline
Exotic larimar
Rubies the size of your eye
Jasper and almandine
Tanzanite
Malachite and smoky quartz
Moonstones and polished onyx and
Chips of lapis lazuli
And carrots.
