A BOY

An exploration of the psychological phenomenon called pareidolia that is delivered in the form of an allegorical poem.


a boy saw a streak through the trees

a boy saw a streak through the trees

a green dragon flew with a blue cow

a green dragon flew with a blue cow

a boy saw a castle in the distance

a boy saw a castle in the distance

but the dragon burned it down

but the dragon burned it down

a wizard ordered the dragon to do it

a wizard ordered the dragon to do it

a boy hid from the wizard, but not for long

a boy hid from the wizard, but not for long

because a boy was eaten by a whale

because a boy was eaten by a whale

and now a boy is all gone

and now a boy is all gone
