Lunatics


Alice in Wonderland by YukiValentine

Lunatics

a grin without a cat
is not a cat without a grin
in a world without sadness
where colors rule and
you care not
where I go while
I care much
to detain you
for your knowledge
binds me to this
upsidedown world
you are everywhere and
there is anywhere
you find cheeses
shaped like faces
and then i’m
suddenly called mad
by mates who
regularly escape
from the local
lunatic asylum
though they should be
sitting in the lounge
solving riddles and puzzles
playing checkers and bridge
on a competitive level
throwing red colored
jello into each other’s
grizzeled hair
intimidating the
sassy unfortunate inmates
who cannot wait
their turns on
the croquet field
and then slam balls
into each others heads
with confusing fury
and no account
for the proper
rules of safety
eating wild mushrooms
falling out of
an orange sapped tree
right onto my head
as i manage to hold
onto the tail
of my everpresent
cheerful mentor

NightTime Triolet


NightTime Triolet

At eleven PM I go to bed,
for I must give my brain some rest.
I close my eyes and lay my head;
by eleven PM, I’m always in bed.
Though I wish to relax, I find instead
some hot balloons lift up my chest.
So,when, at eleven, I am in bed,
dreams don’t give my brain a rest.
