A vacuum cleaner with a skull

After Billy Collins

Imagine a crab with the face of a priest,
a banana with the skin of a snake,
a sofa with the height of a mountain.
Imagine a front door with shark teeth,
a lollipop made out of fingernails,
a vacuum cleaner with a skull.
Imagine a baseball cap with an ice cream rim,
a slipper with a ghost’s mouth,
a set of goalie gloves with a future.
You’re having dreams these days
and I cannot imagine what you’re seeing.
