Yellow Submarine

A Yellow submarine i was
a drop on the tip of a bright green leaf
that fell unfelt on your hair;
the drowned out flash in your brain
that dropped
through your fluid
like a nugget through oil,
animal, mineral, vegetable oil
filtered through shades
but yellow still,
and i became sweat and excess
in piss
from vitamins
and coffee
and beer.

Artist's Description

i read this to some bubblers recently and decided it was ok. I don’t know much about poetry, or read it much. I’ve written a lot of lyrics, so i don’t think too hard about how something looks on a page, just how it sounds.
