above mine startled eyes
three big noses
in the sky
formed a cloud formation
some miles high
'Distant Durante's'
proudly nudging by
such strange invasion
to mine eyes
no drugs today did take I
momentarily I ponder
then rethink
creative imagination
on the blink?
likely the chemicals
in my brain
swilling back
a little too much of the
endorphinesque drink
the likeliest of culprits
I should think......................

Author's Notes/Comments: 

this poem was inspired by a recent sunny day at a stop light I looked up and saw what looked like three noses in the sky. I knew from this phenomenon I would write a poem and here it is! Note Durante is the last name of Jimmy Durante a famous funny man with a very large nose.
