THE DREAM PULLS MY MEMORY FROM A WELL
I AM SERVED MEMORY FOR BREAKFAST!

INSIDE THE DREAM I SHALL HAVE TO UNLEARN
THE BITTERNESS OF THE WARHUNGRY CAPITALIST LIFE
THE EMPTY MEANINGS OF THE LOBBYING FIRM!
THE LANGUAGE THAT TURNS ME CRUEL AND USEFUL!

IN THE DREAM I AM REQUIRED ONLY BY MY LOVERS
NEVER THE EXTRACTIVE DRILLS OF THE OILEATERS!
I HAVE BEEN UNMADE BY THE DREAM OF GOD
I HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM MEANING!

THE SUN BURNS NEW MEANING ONTO MY SKIN!
I AM CRISP WITH NEWNESS
THE DREAM VOMITS UP THE SLUDGE OF ABANDONMENT
SWIMMING IN THE SLUDGE IS A MCKINSEY CONSULTANT!
SWIMMING IN THE SLUDGE IS ARTHUR BALFOUR!
THEY DROWN

I AM THE LOVE OF THE DREAM EMBODIED!
I WILLINGLY DISSOLVE MY BITTER ATTACHMENTS!
THE DREAM IS A FUTURISM OF THE SPIRIT!
THE SPIRIT IS AN ORALITY!
THE SLUDGE IS A STATE DEPARTMENT!
MY MEMORY RETURNS ME TO THE GREAT EARTHDREAM!
PALESTINE IS A DREAM OF THE FUTURE!
FUTURE IS A PALESTINE OF THE DREAMING!
