perhaps

I dreamt
only
(perhaps it wasn’t a dream)

wasn’t a dream at all
walking

across wasteland
looking down
eyes looking down

nothing forward
nothing passed

and there
in the middle of orange scrub
bumped into an oil tanker

or perhaps
i was a garden slug
encountering my house

perhaps

 

grinding gears

they’re still talkin’
’bout Mopars and Hemis
on Diamond Street

grindin’ gears
and wishing wastefully
in between beers and shots

somewhere
everywhere
people hang on
to dreams we dreamed
dreams we have forgotten

halcion days
of gasoline and motor oil
in the backwash
of an American Dream

 

i’ll show you yours if you show me mine

i’llĀ  show you yours
if you show me mine
let’s gather wool together
for the winter’s discontent

a few problems, yes,
i have with you
and
i know you got yours as well

let’s show and tell
and settle this thing

keeping it in
is inflaming the voices in my mind
and their cries of derision
i can
no longer stand

we never speak
of these things

we hold in our anger
hoping it will pass

why can’t we talk to each other?
let the waters flow under the bridge?

why can’t we be honest?
are our hearts too tender to handle the Truth?

let us speak
and clear the air

i’ll show you yours
and you show me mine
