Here’s a brand new one, folks, for your immediate pleasure.  Enjoy.


is like a dream
and dreams are like memories
chasing you through your days
changing shape
filling holes
until you wake up
a different person than
the day before
which is as it should be
or you would become
thirty thousand versions of yourself
if you’re lucky
each crowding the other
keeping the one behind from
moving ahead to
the place you need to be

blurry doug
