Accidental Death
larrylark

Translucent orbs
 1
suspended on
 2
shining desk tops
 3
reflect immobile constellations
 4
in reverse order
 5
onto shallow ripples
 6
of whiskey and dry.
 7
Above hang Hydra,
 8
Ursamine, Pyxis,
 9
as glitter sprinkled
 10
over defiled oceans.
 11
 
 
Below, frantic drivers queue,
 12
unnerved by
 13
a horse drawn hearse,
 14
skewed sideways,
 15
hinting at other worlds
 16
glimpsed in rear view mirrors.
 17
 
 
 
 
Inside,
 18
a loose sphere collides
 19
with a crumpled spread sheet.
 20
revolving chair spins lazily,
 21
propelled by ghostly force.
 22
A spectral figure observes
 23
as the ambulance leaves.
 24
Crumpled cars are towed away.

This is like the worst poem today...but for some odd, odd reason, I like it.
 — unknown

the title makes me think of the rilo kiley song and that pits my judgment against you because this poem has nothing to do with it.

but there is probably no connection at all.

it's almost too detailed, in its description, there is very little thinking in it for me, it's almost too cluttered.

why?
i can't figure it out, i'm not very eloquent.

i wish i knew
