When the doctor said,
‘Now turn your head and cough.’
There are times that I take myself too seriously. But this is not one of them. This is written for the poetry challenge given by Mark Kerstetter for d'Verse Poets Pub . We are to write a poem based on one of the paintings of Giorgio de Chirico, who was a of the leading proponents of the Surrealist movement. He has done a wonderful job presenting the history and philosophy of the movement, and my poem is absolutely unworthy of this. I hope it will be accepted as it is offered, in the spirit of fun. So, just as well, I didn't make their deadline to link it; but, if you would like to see some serious poems on about Chirico's paintings click on the link above.

August days follow
one after another like links in a chain
weighted down by heat
I drag the sun behind me
stirring dust devils
with each step
