DREAM COME TRUE 2 ~







 DREAM COME TRUE
————————————

 for, you know who





Fucking





Going grocery shopping

With the one you love

Isn’t grocery shopping







Flowers




How clever to be so

Beautiful — to have us

Move them into the light







In Country




Everywhere —

Little bits of mouseshit

Little bits of seed







Name




With my long hair

Tucked up into my cap

I’m called redneck







No




When there are no poems to write

Get used to it —

No is no







Hidden




Every single second

This stream passes under

This bridge






Eco




I chopped down the tree I planted

Cut up and burned as fuel

Carried out its ash to spread






Sure




The cat hides away all

Day asleep and thinks nothing

Of coming out and wanting a kiss
