Surreal Adventure/Parodic History
, by

I went to the museum,
	and asked for a room,
		just enough for the moon,
				and tomorrow.
The room has one bed,
	on the wall, filled with paint.
		To sit, have to share with a wheel.
			To eat, the ice cream is on the floor.
    Even the en-suited urinal, doesn't flush the right way.
      Well, I thought, it's just two nights for the moon...

					With no fusion.
Sometimes a collision,
	Is better than
		A silent desperation.

- Parting ways, on a corner, unloved.

Jules et Jim, by François Truffaut

A tiny mistake,
	Grows into a sour cake.
		It takes a bite to let go,
			And a leg to reload.
You are what you are,
	Perfect each moment,
		With nothing to look back.
Let go of doubt,
	More would come about,
		It's best to go out,
			And keep your mind at shout.
