A Lion with the Vultures

A naked girl, a caravan,
A snake with just one eye,
An armful of rare orchids..
Tell me…
Can a bullfrog fly?

A precious gem, a hurricane,
A cat that holds a tune,
I have another question now,
What time of day is June?

A lion with the vultures,
A boxer with a lamb,
And a jar of small catastrophes,
That tells me who I am.

A harlequin, a swimming pool,
A sun that never dies,
It’s raining in my tea cup,
Tell me,
Can a moonbeam fly?
