The Lucid Dreamer

She sleeps from the futility of life
And wakes up to the music of violence
Crocodiles and soldiers and robots and deities and incubi
And non-cute monsters in her head
A roach squished, a man devoured
An infant disfigured, a machine breaks down
A fruit cut open, a napalmed crowd
A Virgin Mary violated, a Christ crowned
So she mumbles in her slumber
What she can’t in consciousness
And turns her face into her pillows
In a classic favorite fetal pose
Fighting with the courage of hitting the hay
Better a recluse in surrealist decay
Fearful to wake up again
This time on planet earth
To the trembling of her senses and a lust for the knife
When she finds out she’s still alive
There’s nowhere called home, no luxury worth its price
Where is afterlife

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
