From the Nightmares of 2020: Dreamwashing #1

Dreamwashing #1


Pelting a nightmare of mink

That stole

The hubrys of kings

And starlets

Starring a species

Wrapped in blindness

  • A hunger that devours
  • And devours, and develops
  • And destroys
  • And raises to cull
  • And soon shall be called
  • To extinction by its own devices

And strike and strike and strike

Said the blond performer

Of nightmare dreamwashings

As the suspended world

Hung in the balance

Clueless and misguided

Slouching toward caatstrophe

Devoid of the courage

Of the fleeing mink
