The dream machine
Teases the mind and
Would tear at the heart

The dream machine
Organizes multitudes
In front of the lens
And behind

Imagination defeats
Reality, relives, distorts,
Preserves, researches
And mines the soul

When the shadows stop
The dream ends
When the machine is
Dead, our lives begin.

The Machine: 2/26/2007
