elusive dreams float
between id and ego
creating a strange parade
audience or participant
desire or self-control
passion or planning
a combination
truth naked
like the emperor
eyes are shut

Backyard Genie



there was a genie in my backyard

it stayed for two entire days

just stood there & stared at me

without a thing to say


i wondered what i’d wish for

if he were to grant me three

all he did was stand there

silent by the tree


dreams of wealthy lifestyles

of fortune’s fame it’s true

the power & the knowledge

my desires rampant grew


but as i stayed there watching

that giant imp began to melt

smiling quickly back at him

keeping cards i’m dealt
