today overlaps
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?

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    What are you on SFAM that allows for the making of cupcakes, yet sees the ghost wedding cake? (love that)

  2. LOL @ your sidenote

    and beautiful way of describing that side-effect! You almost make medication sound attractive! πŸ˜‰

    Only you would/could make poetry from a drug side-effect. Hey. How about a who series of drug side-effect poems? πŸ˜‰ 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!

    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 πŸ˜‰
