The Waking Dream

The waking dream supposes it is dreamed
by everyone in moments of their lives.
Some dream the waking dream as they are born;
others, in the hour that they die.
For some, a blessed few, the waking dream
illuminates each minute that they live.

‘What is the waking dream?’ you say. Don’t ask.
Or, better, ask away. I cannot answer.
I am not awake enough to know I dream.

Take away redundant, lazy words.
Take away. Words. Remove emotion.
Take it all away. Receive the dream.
