All The Same

I had a dream about the world


a timeless tale of this and that


and as I wondered, where I sat


a child fist upon me, curled


 


I had a dream about the sky


a blue-toned black, from night to day


and every bird that flew away


had wandered there, perched up so high


 


I had a dream about the rain


a trickle that destroyed the calm


an inky black, from frothy balm


I sat there still, and racked my brain


 


Why the world, the rain, the sky


the ink-black calm, the birds on high


It all adds up to what I've found


the child's fist upon me, pounds


 


I've found the answer to the dreams


It seeps and drips from ink-black seams


and when the ink corrodes my skin


I am absolved of all my sin


 


It's then the answer sidles past


floating farther, sinking fast


twitch of skin to fleck of ink


it drifts upon the words I drink


 


I had a dream, of world, of rain


of balmly sky, it's all the same


the answer breathes of how I feel


of world, of rain, of sky, of real
