On dreams

When you dream you're falling

it's not a good sign

nor is running in place

nor your tooth falling out


the old wives say, someone of yours will die

someone will hurt you or betray you


and they didn't say how to kill a snake in your dreams

or how to tell an old wife the cake didn't set


they didn't say how to explain trees to a blind man

but for betrayal we've invented everything


and no one said what it means when

you dream of fucking

and come in your sleep
