Take The Butterfly


Take the butterfly is what Mark likes to call a surrealist word painting

“Halt, who goes there?” 
I said to myself out loud, and then I answered me in a soft loud slow dulcet tone type
style of voice and said.

“Who goes were?” 

I surprised myself, as I was sure that I was the only one there.

“Do you want to ride my bike?
“Have you ever tried treading grapes while juggling?”

So surprised was I that I made my mind up there and then Never to buy those knobbly bits
That taste of flat square circles ever again.

Why does my left hand keep coming up and smacking me in the gob?
  Still it’s dark outside and that’s the best place for the night to be.

So I sat very still while trying to balance on a moonbeam, and asked everyone I passed,
why are their feet going in opposite directions to themselves?

  And why is my head on your body?

Wow what a night, still its early days but I think I have the answer,
Take the butterfly.
