"Mushroom Clouds in Magic Land" IN COLLABORATION WITH FRIEDA

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

i am missing Ms. Frieda and decided to re-post this poem which we did together .. i am so angry how one very nasty person was able to drive her from the Cafe :(

"
Mushroom Clouds in Magic Land

Tapped upon a mushroom cap's fancy,
      to see if the rabbit hole was rumor
curiouser and curiouser
     about the unimaginable avenue,

She opens my mind and
fear grips my colors
from the hinterland .....                   tremors
wink    
           and blink   
                              and nod

As I sat upon my newfangled gumption
   common sense took a recess,
 spoke in rhyme to the tune of absurd
     to my surprise, the scaramouch    
                 of a head talked back

my birthing in darkness
          musk and dank scent
knocks        my shroom
head explodes
            collide's scope intense

in his elegant persuasion,
made a date for half past daft
took me on a dip of a mystical carpet trip
 alas,  we've lived happily ever after
upon a prime floating island in a cloud

clouds of words
spilling like rough gouged stones in
tumbler's majestic insane
forever now i
 

re-pronounce her name



beginning and



end... ;)

What a superb collaboration from you and dear, dear Frieda = yours are minds that walk the same space.. perhaps!

There's so much in this piece, the colour and highlights take the reader into a world of bewilderingly spaced.out somewhere. The phrasing you've used is another language, a magic not to be translated - and who would want to do that...all of us!

Lewis Carrol would undoubtedly want to join the two of you in another collab, happily sharing his enlightenment via any means - even holding the breath and flying off and away with the daisies. . Brava and brava again.. Loved this. Great musical accompaniment, by the way... ..

Oooh the two of you worked some magic with your words. Freda...I do believe she left about the same time I took a vacation from the café. She is surely missed and impossible to replace. Words that dance, and words the conspire. How contraire. You fan dangled my head! ;)

love this... it is typical Frieda, and i wondered why she wasn't here when i came back. She was a great poet with a wonderful sense of humour, a shame there is often so much nastiness on this site

You are most welcome. It was such a pleasure. Thank you for sharing :)
Are you one of the wonderful people spreading the BS rumor that I am the troll that drove this Frieda person away? Every couple of months I get a message or two from freshly created fake profiles (usually by John McFayden, ANTO (now tony Jordan), or Wordman) with some wonderful suggestions on how I should kill myself over "trolling" this Frieda person off the site. Which is the epitome of hypocrisy since that is the same thing they claim to be against. Anyway, it would be odd if you were, since we are generally pretty cordial in our limited interactions. But IF you are one of those awesome people spreading that nonsense about me it'd be great if you stopped. I've never once interacted with that person and am pretty sure she was gone before I got here so that accusation is completely irrational and based on unrelated sour grapes. Nice poem by the way.

“made a date for half past daft” I loved that line! Great collaboration. The imagery and movement of the piece rather put me in mind of the surreal stylings of some of David Bowie’s work.

You’re welcome. And, thanks, good to connect with you again as well.
Excellent piece. It has a John Lennon meets Lewis Carroll feel to it, with a hint of David Bowie. I can't, in all honesty, find anything to criticise. It's elegant, surreal and faintly disturbing.
