Dreams are merely sarcasm in
Disguise / a confusion of subtle
Camouflage / stolen moments
To make you believe otherwise
Of the moon & roses / of sex &
Heroism when all is only as you
Left it / except for the disembodied
Laughter & the light seems a bit
Disturbed / like autumn in July or
A faded shade filtering the sun

Nightmares are different / removing
The mask to reveal a punch line
No one finds very funny / in rented
Rooms where gloom hides all your
Secrets vanity becomes a mirror
Image of nothing left to romanticize
& laughter’s a leaky radiator hissing
Lullabies to keep you from another
Sleepless night (counting sheep is
illegal in certain states)
