a bit hungry


"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  
Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." 

- Groucho Marx

seeds in hand

Unknown judge said no harvest 
but we had seeds in hand
(in dream).

Reality bites like a hurt dog
afraid and hit as the real fades away
in the noise of the cutting grass day
shining on the wounds.

As real as the movie is and has to be,
be it, while sorry is being whispered
(in dream).

It was too fragile, like a bird on a branch
resting and singing before leaving,
to be believed in so the egg was ate in an omelette
before taking the next plane.

A vulture squeaks and flies around,
waiting to clean bones
(in dream?)
while the land gets hungry.

"Life is a dream; death is a dream; waking is a dream; sleeping is a dream.
This dream is the direct immediacy of our experience. 
Trying to hold on to any of it by buying our story line only blocks our wisdom."
- Pema Chödrön
