Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today. -James Dean


A dirty fireball.
A dancing tooth.
An octagonal chasm.
A fruitless rock.

Just some guys
Hanging out
By a furry river.
Just some words
On this page.

It doesn’t
Make sense.
It never will.
Unless you
Encompass a flying
Granola bar
On stilts.
A gorilla man eating
Its reflection
Made of hair.
A giant Cyclops
With five eyes.

There is too much,
And still more,
For you to do
To unlock this
Thing’s meaning.
So stop trying.
You punk bubble.

I came up with the title first. I was going to name another poem that, but the name was too light for the poem, so I wrote one that suited the name.

Something else that makes you a wonderful writer: You're able to pick up on the hidden meanings of poems, and I'm sure you do the same with other things on a daily basis. I really was not expecting you to read any of my work. It makes me happy to know that I can enjoy the writings of one such as yourself and get critiqued by that same person. I feel that you have so much to teach me, and I'm very eager to learn what I can.

This is so clever. I love it. It underlines that even when things are absolutely ridiculous, poetic minds try to make meaning of it. Like what I just did there. Iaccidentally found a meaning to your meaningless poem. Oh boy, how ironic.
