Three Utterly Weird Poems

Before the mountains were born,
Or there were stains in the sea,
God put his mouth to a horn
And blasted out notes with glee!
I’m tired of drinking coffee, tired of drinking tea;
Give me chicken breasts and thighs for eternity!
I heard three tigers breathing, I thought my time had come,
But then the fiercest tiger was turned into a plum
By the surging murmur of a wizened wizard’s breath,
And now I can’t help singing how I escaped from death!

With light in your eyes
You embrace me in your arms
Our hearts beat as one*

even the wasteland shadows
murmur their secret desires
