The Dreamers

It’s the dreamers
that live the hardest.
They wake up with glorious visions
and find themselves disappointed
with too few opportunities,
and work
that the conscious world provides.
Reality never tastes so bitter.


Fragments of Time

I spent my summers looking through picture windows
in airplanes, ships, and too-cold apartments
watching for changes in my perception.
Some sign of time.
Instead I found myself hazy and misguided.
So honestly uncertain.
These were dream-fogged days.



I feel obliged to tell you
I don’t give a fuck —
your cartoon lifestyle
and sense of direction
have at my patient way
making me tumultuous
and dangerous
a toxic concoction, you are
spinning in semi-circles
and getting somewhere inconclusive.
