Pillow of Shoes

Pillow of Shoes

A Poem by Whales

Accepting consciousness in a gasoline whale
Carelessly sliding in a hospital mirror 
Reflecting silky moths sailing through space 
In juxtaposition with a pillow of shoes

Ethereally sinking in the electric chairs
In a room full of mellow eyes
Surrounded by a calm sea

A floating Iris in the sunshine
Dancing in the wind 
Through the grassy hills
Melting the toxic barricades 

Wandering innocence with mischievous desires
Of corrupt ideas pillaging her mind with bombardments of soft pianos
Gently gliding down into her subconscious 

The foggy hills in the dull blue rain
Slowly dripping down from the smoky clouds which wind over-head
Docile dreams dip sequentially throughout the atmosphere
Freedom approaches

Extremely powerful imagery. Really beautiful use of language, wonderful choice of words.

This is much better than the first version I read. Nice job on adjusting line breaks. There is a lot of verb -ing going on, which can be a mouthful, perhaps try slimming down?
