A test to see if anyone is out there :)


Dreamily Drunk

I dreamed I was on a very exact island
It was somewhere in the specific
I was lying on the beach
This is harder than it sounds
For someone who is mostly truthful
A man in the distance
Was slowly walking my way
Even though he had never seen me walk
He carried a basket full of fruit
I asked if he had any desecrated coconut
But he said he was very kind to his produce
The waves were lapping the beach
Because the beach was obviously tired
I looked up to the noonday sun
Standing next to the morning sun
Which was next to the afternoon sun
And I thought to myself
(I seldom think to other people)
“That is rather strange, three suns all in a line.
I wonder what the payout is?”
I pushed the button and waited for the attendant
Who told me that this island was out of order
So I just went to the bar and got dreamily drunk

Excellent playing with words and ideas! I really enjoy the ones which take us into another dimension, where everything is just a bit off kilter. I read it sevearal times to really savour the morphing ideas. Great read!

I love reading your poems waiting to see what will happen next, like being with Alice in the rabbit hole. Anything can happen.
Enjoyed reading this one.

See you at the bar! This brought to mind a rhyme from childhood, "it was Springtime in the Rockies no the snow was raining fast, a barefoot man with shoes on went slowly running past.....etc
