Something In Your Eye

So what’s that sad young hatted man
about, standing in a sea of pinkish liquid,
holding some strange little yellow creature –

is it sleeping, is it dead? What’s that
green amorphous thingy swimming
through what ought to be the air ahead –

globules of some unnamed substance
filling what no longer looks like sky?
Have you something in your eye?
