Xanadu Calling

I had a Coleridge moment
though I don’t think I was high
and dreamt of such a lovely verse
it made me want to cry,
but when I woke I couldn’t find
a proper working pen
so now each night I hope I have
that vision once again.

Oooh, I remember that movie, Olivia Newton John, right?
and I've experience that many more times than I care to rememebr. Often even whilste awake. "I'll surely rmemeber that" I tell myself. I should rmemebr, though, that I have a bad memory...
What was I talking about?

While that was truly a classic I was referring to a poem by Coleridge called Kubla Khan which he reportedly wrote in an opium induced trance type state from which he was awoken by a knock on the door and couldn't remember the rest of the vision, or something like that... what was I talking about?
