an impromptu poem

a rough draft. i'm spouting off the top of my head right now.



"Spots in My Eyes"

There are lots of pretty lights i see
after staring at the sun
they dance around, pulsate, change colors
in fascinating and hypnotic ways

i've discovered that the brilliance of these sparkles
are more vivid and clear when i close my eyes
when there are no other things to distract my vision
(trees, cars, houses, people)

but the more i look at the sun with eyes wide open
the more i don't need to close my eyes
because the sun helps take away the distracting images
making the lights in my eyes brighter and more radiant

i think the day will come when
i won't have to close my eyes at all
to filter out the nonsense images
and fully enjoy the lights swirling, twisting, and turning

and when that day comes
you'll see me in a comfortable chair
a beer in my right hand and a smile on my face
watching my own private light show until i die.
