Sky set down

Thursday, February 03, 2011

In the west where the big light orb goes down, there's an ocean so big you'll never reach the end of it. Even if you sail on it for all the days of your life.

Sooner or later, you'll get so tired, you'll see the man in the moon stand up from his perch and climb down the silvery star stairs to the water. Then you will notice all the little fishes coming up to nibble on his toe, as he dangles it in there.

Then there'll be a big wave, filled with hungry fishes, swamp over your boat, and start to eat your feet. You can wake up then, if you're so inclined 'cause the nest thing you'll see is theinside of the big fishes' belly.

Once you're in there, there's no telling when you'll get free. But you could try tickling the top of his throat from inside till he has to cough so hard that he sends you back into the ocean.

If your boat isn't there, well you better start swimming, cause it'll be a long way till the next island. If you're lucky, you'll find a tropical paradise, and live on coconuts and fishes for the rest of your life.

You could wake up then, but maybe you just won't want to leave there.
