MAGPIE...Prompt #179

THANK YOU, Tess, for Magpie Tales...


Taking a deep breath
like a comedian high
on inhaled helium
filling a red balloon,

I'm nesting in
a new-fangled identity.

Changing my voice,
fooled my lover,
kissing a new Spiderman
on the web.

What's the matter
if there is no matter,
Einstein's laughing,
just as lofty as me.

Playing games
with the gravity of it all,
double entendres
all over the place.

I leap frog
over poetic impediments,
craft is empty,

invisible me
steering a skill
full of hot air.

Forgotten all together
the witty driver
of yesterday.
Monday morning,
me, dimly plotting.

What's great about this poem is that it could end at any segment. It's so whimsical and giddy that it's nonsensical ways leave you satisfied wherever you being or end. Love it.
