Limping through Shangri-La

My unicorn threw a shoe
and sent me sailing headlong
through a gentle mist

of sun rays and birdsong
until I slammed against the stony edge
of a lovely double rainbow, colorful

as the butterfly I crushed while sliding
feet first all the way down the glorious arch
into a pot of molten gold.
