Three Things: Dream Edition III

2012 March 19

It’s Monday, and I’d rather be sleeping. Something tells me I’m not alone, so let’s conjure up some dreamscapes, shall we? Perhaps this time with a certain Belgian surrealist twist? Grab those pens and let the bizarre breeze blow.

(But let’s be honest, now I just want some waffles.)

    Standard Dream # 5 (As Promised)

    Magritte’s complicity
    With his
    Common and quiet footpaths
    Worn of distraction
    Yet demanding duty
    And his hands callused
    Fumbling and awake
    Reaching for an agreement
    And promise
    More promise
    He promised
    This should take care of itself

      Eric, this is a lovely, quiet moment you have here. I especially love “Common and quiet footpaths / Worn of distraction”. Beautiful!
