Silence Now Heard

“I think it's a lovely hallucination but I love it sorta.”
― Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums
Could You?

I promptly smeared the map of daily
With splashing paint in one quick motion
I have displayed on a tray of jelly 
The slanted cheekbones of the ocean
Upon the fish scales’ tinsel pattern              
I’ve read unknown lips’ salute
 And you, 
 could you have played 
a nocturne
On a waterspout for a flute?

- Vladimir Mayakovsky
