purple bear and i

Buddy when he came
was bringing ribs and corn cobs
singing how’s your father
as the sun was going down
purple bear and i
were sitting on the landing
laughing like hyenas
at the people falling down

Alison held court
like an old time loser
wearing frills and furbellows
and drinking Adam’s ale
purple bear and i
were shouting imprecations
watching all the triers
and knowing they would fail

Julie built a wall
to keep in all her secrets
louche and damned-if-i-know
in a pretty off hand way
purple bear and i
still swaying to the music
lost in some sweet nightmare
where the dragon people play

Caractacus was there
preaching from the wrong book
setting folks on fire
as the early birds all fled
but purple bear and i
had had enough of sitting
so kissed each other gently
then trundled off to bed

    • The picture I get, though the language doesn’t really match it, is a kid, sat at the top of the stairs, in his pyjamas and dressing gown, holding tightly to his stuffed purple teddy bear, and watching an adults party going on below πŸ˜€

    I keep thinking that this is what a nice hallucination must look like! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†
