Speed Poem

The morning begins as the day ends.
Hedgehogs wearing pyjamas eating alarm clocks.
A lion in chains (with the voice of a soprano spider).
The man pretending to be the last Pharaoh walks by.
I say I left my heart in a cage and my voice in a suitcase.
He says he saw a fish in a fireplace and heard his eyes in a fish bowl.
