crocodiles flossing on a lake shore
inviting me to swim with them.
Dobermans dressed up as poodles
with cute little ribbons and bows
waiting, just waiting
on a path along my way.
Rattlesnakes shaking their tails like
tambourines, resembling Stevie Nicks.
Black widow spiders stitching a web
that appears to be a hammock
for my body to nap.
These things keep me awake
make this bubble,
my life, interesting.
