Piccadilly Dreaming Away From Shore


Piccadilly Dreaming Away From Shore 

Ice cream,

slow time,

colors are vivid.

Music makes the feet move,

times are good,

and people are in love with life.

They all watch mundane things

with great gusto-


high and wispy,

slender vapor,

a sky full of ships

and waves


full of kaleidoscopic, 

vibrant color,

swirling soft petals,

boat propellors above the sea

Brown rice:

nutty flavored part of a seafarer’s diet,

chewy on the tongue

with that periodic crunch,

a dollop of honey atop


perched on heads as pirate scarves,

hat bands and feather accessorizing,

brims overhanging

the beautiful faces of the romantics


strongly brewed,

poured into patterned teacups,

quixotic ideas drunk in

not unlike a sailor’s rum

Idealists with

big thoughts,

breaking chains,

piccadilly dreamers floating upon the new ark.
