Dream Snapshots

Silence, en tourne!



Like a fairy tale

that awakens the dead

dragonfly in us.

Like pints of rain

that resurrect the dead

leaves in us.

Like a talented genius

that deciphers the genes

of the impossible in us.

Like a handkerchief

in the hands

of an innocent Iago –

who is not addicted

to devilish plotting –

that makes us discover

that latent smartness in us.

Like a thirsty camel

that clings to life

in the African Sahara

that awakens dead

patience in us.

This dream helps

the camera

of my imagination

shoot a movie

set on a dark black

cloud pregnant w/ rains

of aspirations.
