A unicorn named Gazpacho

By molock

i went to the edge,
and i thought i was
i looked in to the
and heard a voice
that said...
I am a unicorn and
my name is Gazpacho.

It's always been on my
 bucket list,
Don't ya know?
to climb a pyramid
and fly with a unicorn 
named Gazpacho.

It had a crucifix in each
and halos around its
it said...
"i think you can fly,
if you swallow this
rosary bead.

In the land without
the clouds have a
strange orange glow...
everything's in motion,
...but movin' real slow.
It's been fourteen days,
with this unicorn named
i have spread my wings
but i still want more.

It's alway's been on my
bucket list,
don't ya know?
to climb a pyramid,
and fly with a unicorn
named Gazpacho.

    Avocado and bacalao, a favorite of mine that my Puerto Rican sister-in-law's family used to serve on special occasions; served cold over lettuce and similar to guacamole, but without the salted and dried cod fish...le sigh. Been awhile Mo and your next mission will be to write a tome on "mofongo" - a Dominican Republic treat of mashed bannanas and the kitchen sink thrown-in, but I digress my brudda. BTW, BBQ unicorn is dee-lish. Cheers, and be careful those halos round the knees don't trip you up my friend! - Dan

    This reminds me of when Pink Floyds Another Brick in the Wall came out. The buzz around that music was legendary. Every song stayed in your head and had you singing without even knowing. Youre the best Mo

    thanks Damien, i got the title idea from a children's baking competition on the food network it's Karen's favorite, our tv rarely leaves that station. anyway the kids had to bake a cake decorated like a unicorn and make name tags, one of them named their's Gazpacho. i thought a unicorn named after a tomato soup ....that's just fucked up! then i just exercised my imagination to write this nonsense. thanks for commenting i truly do look forward to hearing from you. you two have really been writing some fantastic stuff. later bro - m0
