Debris Of Dreams - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Wishful thinking - in your wildest dreams - lurks
in the subconscious and leads to Freudian slips -
such as remembering the work month differently,
dreaming hard work into being, believing oneself

of Mr Hyde just waiting to jump out at you - to
reveal your darkest thoughts, such as the case
of my production sheet, compiled in a daydream

supervisor swept away the debris of dreams and
the bare bones of cold reality were revealed -
darker than the darkest night, a page of defeat
filled with sweat and blood…
