Oh Essence, Oh Essence – A Poem

oh essence, oh essence
for where art thou be

the sweet perfumed scent
of hallucinogenic pink elephants
running free

spots before my eyes do move
as my stomach growls

perhaps even tasty gruel
to calm my nerves
sustain my creative urge

oh essence, my tears run
as the smoke filled room
doth irritate mine eye for thee
