In your dreams
you know how to fly
& you try to remmember...
One step up in the air
and you're halfway there
take another & you fall
were you ever able
to fly at all?
I wonder & I wonder
& I am
So suddenlly sullen
Has anyone heard a song
written by raindrops?
or met a person made of sunsets?
I want a dog
who can spell pro nouns backwards
I want inspiration
in the form of lightning
I want to change reality
with an idea
or witness the violence
of beautiful homicidal smile
I want to be as special
as the moment when street lamps
light up... all at the same time
