The Fastest Ever Speed Poem

Empty hands on a purring lap.
A black cat curls up with an egg timer.
A crucifix balances on a dodo egg.
Two lives cross without contact.
A pocket knife caresses a piece of string.
Two thoughts tied up with bubblegum.
A cold air balloon sinks into the ocean.
Red paint splashed on a string of pearls.
Raindrop patterns on a sunglassed face.
A crying baby in a war chariot.

Empty hands on a purring lap.
