some assembly required

flights of fancy

stop me

dead in my tracks

I wish I were

belle of the ball

all shiny and new


into a perfect woman

I wish I might

find my electric prince


dance the light fantastic

glass slippers wired for sound

heart arcing

sparks flying

kisses crackling with energy

take me there

take me anywhere

I’ve got pumpkins

hidden beneath my skirts

in case of emergency

so let’s dance

until midnight tolls

and I turn back

into flesh and blood

leaving my dreams

behind me
