"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe." -Neil Gaiman

"Come with uncle," I said, "and hear all proper. Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited."
"If a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man." -A Clockwork Orange


The birds are watching
A whole new creation
Shadows are knotting
In their late-born elation

A whole new creation
Crawling close to the floor
Their late-born elation
Unknown music and more

Crawling close from the floor
The air disappears
Unknown music and more
But you can't seem to hear

The air disappears
Distant beaks are now calling
But you can't seem to hear
The birds, they are watching

This pantoum was inspired by the formless schizophrenic images and sounds that plagued my nights as a child.
