a poem by Joshua Brown
Lemon pepper in my boot!
Jumping jalapeños goddammit shoot!
I saw a cat fly through the air
A feline plane at which I stare
What is going on inside
This wacky world of Connie and Fyde?
The criminals run this crazy place
That elephant has a giraffe face!
Oof! I fell upon a cord
Of ten feet tall and called it "Lord"
"Hello Lord, I have a question
Why is that building in the ocean?"
The cord looked down upon my eyes
He smiled with plastic wrinkles wise
"Oh silly goose," he chided me
"That building has a knickered knee!"
A knickered knee? Oh but how?!
Now I just thought up: "Holy Cow!"
"This world is strange with oddities!"
(But I did not know about the trees!)
The forest sits upon the top
Of purple-pinkish-reddish slop
An oozing mess of glossy lake
On which the sleeping birches wake
They are tall as all but Timbuktu
Their branches grew and grew and grew
Into the sky beyond the clouds
The trees were huge! They heard my shouts!
"Oh my God!" They bent down quick
And from the crowd, just me did pick
And wagged their branches in my face
"Shut up lil man! Shushie! Disgrace!"
Then quick as a wink, they returned
To tallish matters and unconcerned
With my gawking, astonished eyes
With my mediocre, smallish size.
The cord went on for several miles
Around and through, on top of piles
Of ruined cakes and candy canes
A broken world with marble rains
A flash flood here of turkey gravy
A thunder there of gonging lazy...
I woke from dreamlike, tired state.
"To work I'll go I mustn't be late."

Thanks for reading "The Joculator" which was written in Colorado, United States in North America on December 16, 2022. Also keep reading by checking out my last poem: "Nah Bro" which is contemplative of the climate change media and hypocrisy of certain people.
Comment below if you've ever had a weird dream! I love hearing people's dreams, it tells me so much about their unconscious. What kind of characters did you witness in the dream?
