20 acres

Hundreds of faces

Smiling, sneering, sweating

A mind with

Million thoughts running

Red ants on my bed

And in my clothes, celebrating

Feet on cold humid ground,

Tapping and dancing

Litter of stars

A bright moon, glaring

Booming laughs and huge trees

Drunk greens, swaying

Smoke in between fingers

That cling onto death in small measures

Dark and loud light

On my soft hands.

~20 acres of a dream

Within a dream.
