I'm only posting this challenge because I don't think anyone else is bizarre/weird enough to come forward with it.

Anyway, how it works is you use the phrase "Rolling on the laughing floor" as a springboard to write a strangely surreal poem. Probably to be posted in Open, but if it's a bit disturbing (as surreal things are wont to be), you can always throw it to the wolves and lemurs of Dark.

I will post one myself sometime soon ... though why, I have no idea.

See y' there!

Mike

P.S. Some of you lovely people who read and write and enjoy poetry -- sign up to become a Moderator! It's worth it, even when you think your head's about to cave into itself.

I will now shut up.

Um...

Um....

Well...

Um......

Y'know.

I wrote somethin'.



Mikhail, take Modern English away from me! I can't get Ricochet Days out of my head! And this poem doesn't hafta be surreal, y'know.

It's perfectly sensible.

Check it. (Though, admittedly, it is a surreal metaphor, but the state is a real one.)

In a Room. In a House. In a Dream.

written in blood before everything went black
