who says the dead can't dream?
in blind alleys lie hidden
wonders: ghosts of neon addiction,
rundow nighttime promises,
Battered Life Syndrome.
I wander slowly into a dream
A psychadelic narrative
A Jefferson Airplane living movie
While lying in bed, I wake to
Discover I've forgotten why I
My point of entry
Involved slow-dancing with
My shadow across
The graveyard of my innocence.
