Picture

Picture this:
a picture of me,
picturing myself
as a
flying monkey,
or a
dancing nancy,
or something else
imaginary
like that.
Picture
a picture
of a happy
me
– a drunk me –
from some time
a couple of
years ago.
Or better yet,
see it
for yourself,
because even
a poet knows
that words
are shit
to the real
pic.

  2. Swinging like King Kong
    from the Eifel Tower
    hobnobbing with the monkeys
    and the globlin monkeys
    from the Wizard of Oz
    riding Shotgun with Santa Claus

    Embrace that flying monkey.
