the things we dream

~

the things we dream ( maerd ew sgniht eht )

bits of yesterdaze
kiss tomorrow’s lips
unwritten inklings
the shape of a poem

paper plane tickets
a whale in the dales
necromantic twitchers
resurrecting dodos

splashes of flashbacks
from crap past lives
the simp who drank the milk
from cleopatra’s bathtub

cowherds on mu
accountants on atlantis
running from the flood
& hordes of zombie in-laws

mares in the nightie
where the buggers bite
then the leverets play
hares of the day

waking with a grin
once we’ve lobbed rotten veg
at old headmasters
stuck in the stocks
