The Green Fairy

I drank a green wormwood river

With hallucinated sugar

Didn’t find myself there

Just a bad juju genii

Like myself with green hair


I drank a blue wormwood river

True absinthe is blue

Saw my gold tortoise turn into

A Cartier display

Like myself with gold hair


I drank a white wormwood river

Like cloudy ayahuasca

I saw leather books turn to dragons

And a blonde boy called Sasha


I drank a clear wormwood river

And had insane visions

My cane turned into a snake

And its fangs left incisions

Like my poison green hair


I drank a green wormwood river

With hallucinogenic sugar

I drank a clear wormwood river

Like cloudy ayahuasca

I didn’t find myself there

Just a bad juju genii

Like myself with green hair
