upon opening lines

upon opening lines ( senil gninepo nopu )

upon a stormless night
& so the badgers danced
beneath a mutant moon
a thousand owls ago
the bucket kicked the dead
a lemon sucked the sky
a chicken plucked the stars
when mercury was mars
upon the cusp of noon
within the mists of spring
a wiser man once sang
before adventure crawled
a druid drew a shrew
a witch pissed in a ditch
a bat shat in a hat
& all the trees were trees
the day was shades of beige
a daze within a dream
the sneeze was spurts of breath
& sweetly monsters slept
upon a yawning dawn
a bugler blew a breeze
a poet stroked a chin
& so the ins begin
