Awake in our sleep
keep dreams close, mine are
drawn in chalk on sidewalks
bisecting the city of you
into boroughs & bus routes
drawn in chalk, on the side(i)walk
continents shift with self discovery
in you, burrows us routes
& leaves a map for you to follow me
(un)content to drift, be selfish over me
plant your flag & carve boundaries
leave a map, let we follow me
& the sun shiver in our heat
planting flags, carving boundaries
into top down Cadillacs to cruise the
sun, shivering in our heat---
& rain, when it comes, runs colors to blend
anew, in dreams to keep...
over @ dVerse today, Sam has us writing pantoums...which mine vaguely resembles---i had a little fun inside the sand box with my word play today. smiles.
and for my friend g-man, a 55 word story...
Passing the Amazon.com warehouse in Huntington
alight in the pitch, before dawn,
a spiritual awakening,
all the books, locked in rows marching
toward unleashment on unsuspecting masses
ideas, set to crawl into ears & fire neurons
in intentional acts of arson
their comrades chanting
'burn baby, burn'
'light the night-
lead us home'
