Borrowing Day 1 of Jilly’s Jim Harrison quotes.
“In this world of dreams don’t let the clock cut up your life in pieces.”
Painting ©Salvatore Di Giovanna
This is a world of dreams, they say,
where anything you want, you can,
it’s true as long as you can pay.
Dream of Egyptian nights bright-starred
and boat trips down the sluggish Nile,
just jump aboard your credit card.
Ferocious big cat safely dead,
is yours to boast of to your friends,
your photo, foot upon its head.
A dream is slippery as an eel,
what’s fun to you is death to me,
your bucket list to me, unreal.
Too many folk with too much time—
some live their dreams of candy froth,
some yet to leave the primal slime.
