'deliquescent dreams'

dreams deliquesce

into nothingness

exhaled in a single breath
forgotten in a soul-capturing night
drowned in watery fears and doubts
sucked in blackholes of the mind

to: wisps that float upon a breeze,

swirled together by wind patterns;

or frozen in the winter air

to dissolve as spring approaches

i grit my teeth and grimace
at the strangeness of it all

and we fall
from the tree.
bruised and browning apples left and bereft on the hard earth
rotting with a putrefying scent, as
insects feast upon this bounty:
corpses, just corpses

dreams deliquesce

into nothingness

we're going nowhere today,
