Inspired by Prince Myshkin's brilliant eight-word poem....



Birds in adjacent cages
pondering
each other's dreams

....shall we see what else we can come up with?

I'll start....



two broken cuckoo clocks
measuring out
irregular time

Who's next?
:)

(I've been away for awhile.... I hope this hasn't already been done.)

Dissonant depths,

Rain its death sweat
