Nonsense Verse II

well, here I am. 


how did you come here?
i flew on the black back of the poem bird.
i raced down the burst of lightning in the sky and
i slid into an electric blue, echoing cave
and i walked through the dark white and blue
past frozen souls and thought-skeletons
and i came out
into
Here.
what are you doing here?
i'm finding out
what Here means.
and what does it mean?
Here
simply means that once, you were not.
that is flippant.
flippant, like the wing of a grey dolphin
flapping and clapping in invisible chains.
