Poem 20: Chiptune

I've been watching you
Jaw of a prehistoric fish
Ichthyoid tricky
Gawping wide
Words bubbling like a silver river

Let's float away out of here
Double diamond ambulating
Vinegar soaked and inky fingered
Battered and bruised
Yesterday's news

Under the neon blue
Synthetic green-ness in a dish
Metal hot and sticky
Pull you to one side
Bits together, no time to dither

Let's float away out of here
Double diamond ambulating
Vinegar soaked and inky fingered
Battered and bruised
Yesterday's news

Delightfully sticky; delicious use of the prehistoric, then comes that sweet flowing string of words about the river-- You'll have to steal it for a song, sometime.

The whole metaphorical journey about to happen is intriguing... especially to a Piscean like myself.
