Whim, See?

“Everything you can imagine is real” — Pablo Picasso

 ..

It can be indie
-go peri-wink, tum
-bled straight from sky. I can
place a platypus smack
dab in the middle, ask that
tiny snail to fly. Hold that
thought in a
(cartoon)
balloon, pop it
at just the right time, and
watch the words spill to
earth, giggle their way
into the lavender breeze.

These watchdog trees will
bark at each other, gossip
awhile. Don’t be alarmed
when the Chitty Chitty Bang
Bang car flies through, driven
by the Grinch. And don’t flinch
when the cotton candy clouds
get eaten.

Hand me that mad
-genta dragon, would you?

But don’t forget, it’s picas
-so it might be sliding
off of its own face, erasing
parts
as it goes.

    All I needed was the quote and the first line: “It can be indie”
    … and now I’m all set to enjoy the day. Thank you for these purr-missions.

    Hey, I just wrote a “smack” poem too. 🙂

    Crap, this is awesome:
    “Hand me that mad
    -genta dragon, would you? ……………………..(mad, gentle dragon)
    But don’t forget, it’s picas …………………………..(pick-axe, picture-ass, [picked your ass?] so …
    -so it might be sliding
    off of its own face, erasing
    parts
    as it goes.” …………………………….. (erasing always makes me think you’re talking about me!)

    I do hope you’ll take my suggestion, and do dragon poems all day.

    This is my favorite of the summer…I want to read it and memorize it….sing-song it all summer long.

  3. I love it sill lee and whim see call

  4. I like the platypus smack in the middle! And then the dragon! And of course the image of what I’m seeing as abstract face shapes sliding downward.
