Favorite Quote:
"I am finally colouring inside the lines I live between"

When the sun stirred a thick yellow muslin

Of sky

And when the clouds strung like candyfloss beards

From the naked stars

We folded our legs on the carpet

And chased back the dulling of our minds

With Lego bricks

That clambered North

Into multi-hued sky scrapers

Which just about

Managed to grate

The lids of our imaginations

You said

"The Empire State Building doesn't look like that"

And so I built it taller and taller

Beyond all you realism

To a halucogenic paradise

Where bricks could be blue and orange

And the Empire State Building

Could be bleeding upwards

Into a soupy heaven

You put our model on your bedroom shelf


While the sun stirred and began to settle

The spire did not quite manage

To scrape our sky
