on the retinae
stretches all buses to double-deckers
and cupcakes rise in ghost wedding cake layers
my eyes are dreaming
though the body walks
***Who knew a pharmacologic side effect could inspire poetry?

What are you on SFAM that allows for the making of cupcakes, yet sees the ghost wedding cake? (love that)
Imela, Noel ;
LOL @ your sidenote
and beautiful way of describing that side-effect! You almost make medication sound attractive! 😉
Only you would/could make poetry from a drug side-effect. Hey. How about a who series of drug side-effect poems? 😉 It’s lovely.
Hee, hee. Thanks, Alice! Vision is almost normal now. No more Ambien for me. Now, there are other side effects of that I am glad I didn’t have instead!
wonderful visions. I can understand the allure of hallucinogens. sounds like this was a good trip.
Thanks, Terry. Today, I can read again. Not worth the few hours of sleep I got, that’s for sure!
Har… probably can inspire a lot of things.
😉 it did, but could not read or write for a few days. Creepy stuff.
yikes…here is to hoping that passes for you…and hey at least you got a poem out of it…smiles.
Smiling back at you, Bri. Yep–took two days for that side effect to go away.
Just before I realized I needed to get glasses I was amazed at how especially beautiful the Christmas lights seemed. Turned out that I just needed glasses, and when I got them the lights didn’t look nearly as spectacular.
Bummer, isn’t it. I saw a gag on either Mad TV once, or possibly SNL where they had van Gogh’s art change dramatically overnight by giving him glasses 😉
