Last night, whilst I slept
I sojourned the land of dreams
in my dream, I was a man and my name was Nefelibata
I had a wife and a fluffy dog
my dog would masturbate each time it was bored
or we both did, I am unsure.
In my dream, I owned a farm
on which I grew cannabis and heaven
unsure if they were different, one
from the other
they were guarded by angels
who watered them with trumpets and dust.
I had a mantis in my dream
on which I rode to work or the bar
still unsure if they were not the same places.
My bathroom led to Kilimanjaro
where strippers paid to give my friends and I
lap dances in angelic robes.
Reality soon came to me,
cloaked in heat and mosquitoes
winked and kissed me
as it tossed me off the mountain top
My mouth swelled with a taste as I fell,
opening my eyes to earth
and this was it-
that dreams are nothing
and they sing no such thing
as songs of clairvoyance
Dreams are nothing,
simply desires immersed in water and
memories telling the wind how not to twirl.
