A Most Strange Voyage

Written by: James Marshall Goff

Searching deserted streets
Abandoned malls, crowded with
 Wandering ghosts

Collapsed upon mountains
Of human debris
A 24 jewelled railroad
Watch, clutched firmly
In my hand

Time ceased within its
Crystalized shell, unable to discern
Movement

Gulls cackled, and great
Walrus, tusks protruding with vibrant
Menace, labored through my dream

Green islands, verdant with mysterious
Sounds, strange shapes, leaping and
Flying from tree tops

Only to disappear below,
Beckoned me

At last, 

I awoke

And sipped a cup of tea
