Nothing Sinks Quickly

My headache is a wheel of cheese.
A wheel of cheese wanders aimlessly
through the desert.  The desert is an ocean
of thought.  The ocean has a million clams.
Clams cling to cruise ships circling
the tiniest Filipino islets.  Clams suck up
what's needed, cruise ships are cankerous
dreamscapes not to be mistaken
as islets of destination or avoidance
which are havens, yes, aspirin.
Aspirin never fall slowly through the air.

a cheese head poetry would be brilliant -- jenni thinks IQ isn't an indication of poet. so, an IQ of 5 would give pretty much the same poem as a cheese with an IQ of 475. think about it.

In l 6 should be about Islets again. You have mentioned Clams thrice and it would appear one object can only led to the next once

ie the tiniest Filipino islets. Inslets suck up---
