island of toys/

©2022 Michael Raven

driven to the edge
fallen into this
laughing for the tears
that fisheye the view

mercuric vapors--
i should have seen
& indeed
i did
but imaged stone
when pumice it served
scraping flesh from
bone
& even then
the bone
ground
to meal

chalk
rivers run white
in rain

i laugh at my wanton
embrace of absurdity
ha-ha-ha-ha
good joke
played on me
i can see grim smiles
behind those black eyes

lessons learned

welcome to the island
of toys
