I am filled with vitamin D, with a pink
lemonade kiss and a fancy free
Candy floss smile.
It is a marvellous and menacing mischief
that had now pumped up my heart,
and a vitamin glee that I have swallowed.
Rays of sunbeams are hiding in my sweater
and my unshaven legs – prickling
with joy, how glorious to be shown the light.
I am shimmering and dancing in my pants,
and there is a party in my bed socks –
And they rock, because bed socks do that.
And if my eyes were as blue as the sky
-and they are as blue as the sky,
they would be lost, in disguise and forever.
“What is this poem you ask me muse?”
“What is its purpose?”
“The purpose my beautiful fairy-tale wife,
Is that summer came for a day,
Like sand in my toes and a three wheeler bike
It snapped its elastic on my bum cheek and cheered.”
