Treasure Island

>Starr Williams<

(Midnight on July 31,1991 / Spring Branch> TEXAS :))

Can You Imagine?


A sky that’s not blue,
A dog with no tail,
A lie that is true,
A sea with no whale.
How could it be,
To love with no heart,
A leaf with no tree,
For the Pacific to part.
A toe that talks,
A thin sumo wrestler,
A giraffe wearing socks,
Never changing weather.
The clouds raining daisies,
To laugh with no sound,
Cowboys with out paisley,
Feet that don’t touch the ground.
An eye that shines teal,
The moon with no sun,
Bananas without peels,
Friends without fun.

    Starr, a lot of strange/absurd images leading to an ending that makes perfect sense of it all... well done!

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
