The Motel of Bad Dreams
audio version mp3
culture canyon Blvd. you shift, toss, roll awake
find yourself lucid dreaming in reverberating walls
creatively challenged, driven to search madly for
blood and spirit that elongates your light beam,
makes deeper shadow than shade can lay claim to.
cave at the end of the canyon bares a red neon,
Conspires with a common theme song to overpower
night rave party that younger minds embrace
you with a surge of greatness as you scatter your
Salt and spatter the empty heads of generations against
motel walls of bad dreams waking in next door hell.
Out on culture canyon Blvd. you fight, lunge, overcome
to end the reverberating party mentality that
to incorporate into creative sleep search, road,
Steering and response to the night lines elongated by
A light beam, the deeper shadow darker than a closet.
The motel of bad dreams IS waking up in next door hell.
