If I were a lunatic

If I were a lunatic

A Poem by Elizabeth


if I were a lunatic
the world would be orange
or purple
or inside out

down would be left
and squares would smell like tangerines

if I were Alice, I would smash the looking glass
and hide my meds under my tongue
until lights out

but I am not a lunatic
and the world is not orange
or purple
or inside out

and squares have never smelled like tangerines

Deep and profound piece of art, good work...

Like a dreamer (no pun intended) you describe things as though you had been thinking about them a long time, then decided they were just something that ultimately meant nothing. So back to reality. That's my take anyway. :)
