Accidental Pictures - Disturbed in the Head
Pictures Inside My Eyes
Eyes are shut against the pain
But, in rest, lies only distraction.
Pictures inside my eyes will not give the calm I wish to have.
purple and red
Shadows of black
Crickets doing acrobatics overhead.
Two people hugging
Look at the heart.
Somewhere in the background
A dog wants to take part.
Here he comes jumping on a pogo stick.
His tongue, no wait, a snake, hanging out of his mouth.
The snake sneaks across the inside of my eyes.
A lion roars.
Someone plays drums.
This is a place where I feel brave.
Up in the sky
Is it a bird or a plane?
No, just pink paratroopers taking a dive.
Cows are dancing
Wearing their fancy clothes and swimming with dolphins.
The dolphins all have green teeth and
Sport Princess Diana tattoos.
A sniper shoots jelly
From the shore.
A boat sinks in the middle
of the hardware store.
Calm and rest,
The elusive golden rings
Just out of reach
For the accident stole the peace.
