In my imagination
You are a mountain
That stretches into a dead and icy sky
With crimson rocks
And tissue paper trees
From the branches of which
Hang stainless steel clocks

In my imagination
You are a bird
With silver feathers, brilliant plumage that tethers you to the ground
And you live in the green sand
Swallowing grains of glass
Sometime last weekend
You played for a brass band

In my imagination
You are a sponge pudding
With sizzling snow jam spurting from your sugary throat
An hour baking on a grey city street
And another rising up to hell
Someone forces a note from a crackling gramophone
And you ooze to the beat

In my imagination
You are the book I’m reading backwards
With flamingo melon pages carved from plastic shoals
Chasing the geese on the lake
Your spine is soaked by hungry carpets
I’m overwhelmed
By the sense you make.

Nonsense poems are fun! This one is vaguely intended to express strange and abstract metaphors for love...
