Esoteric Lands like 'Brigadoon',
A Time of Wonder, Knowledge, Genuine
Exaltation, ``Cold Blooded Rebellion``!
Confusion & MIRTH!

I Think a Claustrophobic Man!
Suffering the Delirium Tremens at Rush Hour,
Aboard a Packed Bus,
'Resurrected Mummies Seeking Vengeance
Upon the Archaeologists Who Invaded
Their Lovers Tomb``
I Dream! & Think about US Traversing Internal Cities
Sunken Cities In The Afternoon, &
Abandoned Beaches, Empty Parks! !
& The Society of Righteous,
Fists, People Who Pine for Company
Dining at Restaurants Alone! Wom

& Don`t Change their Dollar Store Underwear
Chinese Companies Mass Producing Cloned Pigs-
The Reek of Boots of Disinfectant Treasure, pleasure
Minuscule Japanese Lantern Shaped Robots
Flying across A
Sky filled with Husbands & Wives in Hot air balloons,
Like a Swarm of Jelly fish Dispensing Fists

In His School Yard Contemplating the

Super Effeminate Misogynist
Wearing a Pink Crop Top that Says:
'if You Think I`m a B%t/H,

Bodies of Murky Water! Cloud Infected Skies-
Intoxicated Seekers of a Drugless High-
``The Rejection of the Classical Ideal of Beauty``
Maddeningly Under rated, BEAUTY! !
.....The Darkside of Beauty?
'Beauty is Truth, Truth beauty,

A Cluster of Flamingos in the Evening,
A Flying V of Red Winged Black Birds Soaring
