Shonky Gronk

You can’t do it, can you?

I opened the box and the box was empty

Excuses excuses, you can’t do it.

I opened the box
I was surprised by the design inside
a brown paper palace
a cardboard castle
a four corner fortress
and so I folded.

Nice try but you must do better than that.

I opened the box
I found faces that were never worn
discarded without a second thought
faces brand new and still wrapped
faces silently pleading to wear me
expressions running down the street.

Yes, and what else?

I opened the box and the world was inverted.

Do me a favour.

I opened the box and the gift was eternity.

Last chance, shoot your shot or get lost.

I opened the box…

And?

I opened the box and everything fled
I opened the box and nothing was said
I opened the box and I couldn’t believe
I opened the box and the box was me.

      1. Weird ones always blow my mind. I am fascinated by them and how they come together while unraveling themselves, somehow making sense. I also enjoy Poe every now and then so weird is nothing I would shy away from 🙂
