Dreams 2022

Death By Dust
(9/18/2022)


coated

inundated

buried
by the abysmal
bullshit
of the everyday

we wipe away
enough
at times
to see beyond
ourselves

past
our peopled
pettiness

our human
narcissism

to glimpse
a glint
of foreign
starlight

the glow
of the unknown

but these visions
are fleeting

our thoughts
quickly returning
to the itch
of our assholes

we need
provably
to be haunted

possessed
by spirits

contacted

abducted
by aliens

saved

delivered
by The Divine

something
to show us
the overwhelming
other
of our primal
certainty

to rescue us
from this social
fantasy
that we’ve
created
around the
eating

sleeping

shitting

fucking

of our
daily
disease

a hope
to take our minds
off the disgust
of the price
of bread

the pissing
of politics

military
aggression

our collective
perception
of misery

we need
something
extraordinary
to give us

finally

undeniably

an unshakable
belief

in this
gift
of life
