The Strange Mirrors
Poems based on paintings of Salvador Dali:
What do the signs say?
Why are there mirrors on it?
What kind of sign is that?
What do the mirrors have in it?
What is behind the mirrors?
Does it look like a shirt?
What does the other side look like?
Why is there a mask in the middle of the picture?
What is on the paper?
And what does it look like?
The Beautiful Queens that Shine
The stripes are so beautiful they can shine bright like a star
And a moon the stars in the sky and the moon in the metal
and the stripes they can shine like a butterfly
and they can shine like a siney big heart
and a flower and make a big lovely stripes heart
And they all will be so big, a little girl will pop out of
it like a little pinhole and she will say that
she is so beautiful that she can do what she
wants but she really can't and she acts
like it. And it makes a flower and a spotted
heart and a butterfly. And it's like a blister
and a hot spot and they all shine like
a buttery polka-dotted and spotted heart.
I see this picture with
something familiar inside,
it looks like a giant tooth
with a cavity inside?
No it's a giant bird beak
with an eye! Wait, it's all
of those and some other
things oh oh I wonder what's
I see a man who is sleeping
I see a river flowing through achrystal reflection
I finally step through a
painting filled with secrets
I step through a painting
filled with holes and dreams
I feel like an empty
space I feel like I can
This picture reminds me of California
because California has mountains and
a big rock that is
brown. If somebody put me in a picture I
would want to come back home
to my family because I will be
scared and they wouldn't let me
I like this picture because
it makes me feel good like this
painting because it makes me fee
better. This pictures feel like I
am in this.
This picture reminds me of
a man that is covered by a bunch
of papers. The other pictures looks like
a tooth in the air. The giant tooth has
an enormous hole in the inside
of the tooth. THere are clouds in
the dark light sky. It looks like there
is a stone that is under the giant
tooth. It looks like the boy and
his father is watching the giant tooth.
This painting makes me lost
inside, it make me want
to stare at it for a long time
it has a lot of blue blue
blue blue blue blue
As I step inside this picture
A big giant tooth is above me. I
walk down this big picture
it make me want to give more
and more to share.

This picture reminds me of shapes, all kinds of shapes
I see a mask. It looks like a triangle.
I see bunches of rhombus.
This picture reminds me of thousands
of shuttered pieces of diamonds
falling out of the sky.
