"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
           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... ..

This poem alleviates me of my reason and lets me run free in the absurd. I want to be free of logic sometimes in a creative and playful way.

Ah shrooms. A good poem, not sure if making this poem about tripping on shrooms was your intention; but I get those vibes so forgive me if I’m wrong. Shrooms are amazing things, and very good for creativity. Love love the poem. And shrooms haha. It’s sad to think someone pushed your friend away; that has happened to my friends on here as well. I almost, myself stopped writing here. Your note isn’t a reminder that we should work together as a community’s and drive out these trolls and mean profiles.

This makes me want to take shrooms and go on trip with you, lol!

You have an interesting mind and rich imagination. This piece is like an out of rhythym tune, but because it's unpredictable in wild colours and yet gently spoken, it creates a beauty of it's own within the chaos it exists in.

Thank you for your reviews on my musings. 😊
