Treasure Island

Jeff Goetz


LSD


Foreseeing the night
And its inexplicable delight
Now just a dropp with no end in sight
Twilight comes in rays, clouding my haze
Among them I scream in dimensional fonts
Silence their only response, no longer any pleas
Yes, tis the night to finally dream
Toiling ideas tossed amongst a maze
Only this, our natural getaway
From life's chaotic, hectic fray
Reality says it's the nectar of the gods
Everyone admits with unfavorable nods
Electricity to soothe man's soul, once bitten can only you flow
Whales above your head
Hostile gray clouds drifting amongst red
Azure and pink, the rays do grow
Two-headed dogs, gnarly teeth in a row
Instant pleasure, instant pain
Suffer you must as part of the game
Iconic symbols suddenly real
Teasingly close but dangerous to feel
Life now surely altered
Slowly reality dissolved and faltered
Despair not, return will you, changed, reborn to start anew

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
