Speed Poem

Red line on a green leaf.
Traction engine tree belching overripe fruit.
Reading a newspaper under water.
While an ocean liner sinks in a goldfish bowl

Finding a hand in a pocket.
I shake the front door key as if it was an old friend.
The apricot has a milkshake with a mechanical digger.
As a train goes over a tunnel instead of through it.
