Not to be reproduced

Not To Be Reproduced, 1937, Rene Magritte 


We assume lots. I’d share.
You keep questions/answers
to yourself.

Only me. Trapped in old fashioned
manner. Surrealism. I float in a
guard free stream.

All dressed up. No face. It’s within.
Ears-shells. A key into - whisper…
Hair-waves reflecting sunbeams.

In reality I’m still not sure:
will I sailing…
Gordon Pym. Whaling Harbor.
Sailboat Ariel. Ocean breeze.

Or – just sit at the bay,
read adventurous story
by Edgar Allan Poe
deeply peering in dreams.
