Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Crazy


The ground sparkles
The earth spins
It turns me, whirls me
Upside down
Round and round

Am I crazy?
Maybe not as crazy
as everybody else
I'm prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can see dark shapes
in an empty room
You can dream that we're sending
an elephant to the moon
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me
You're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

The world dims even more than it already has
I throw my head on my hands
I keep on going, day after day
Day
After day
After day

Am I crazy?
Maybe not as crazy
as everybody else
I'm prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can see dark shapes
in an empty room
You can dream that we're sending
an elephant to the moon
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me
You're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can make my heart beat faster
You can slip away again
You can lift me up to the sun
You can make my feet tap
You can make my head spin
And you can whirl me onto the dance floor
right now
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can see dark shapes
in an empty room
You can dream that we're sending
an elephant to the moon
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You're prob'ly not as crazy as
Me
As me
No one's as crazy
As me

You're prob'ly
not as crazy
as me

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
