III

who says the dead can't dream?

in blind alleys lie hidden

wonders: ghosts of neon addiction,

rundow nighttime promises,

Battered Life Syndrome.

 

VI

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

Bothered

Sleeping.

 

IX

My point of entry

Into society

Involved slow-dancing with

My shadow across

The graveyard of my innocence.
