In the Garden


Ok..so this is it
Expression waiting...

No...It's hiding

Behind the geraniums and daisies
Waiting for them to bloom first
But if they do
They will get the sun in the AM
And you
Will still be sleeping

They will bloom
And you
Will still be dreaming

They will shine
And you will still be snoring

They will die

And your alarm will go off...

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
