 new cover painting for Desert of Forms, 2005

                                                                      for Judy A
The Motel of Bad Dreams

audio version mp3

Out on culture canyon Blvd. you shift, toss, roll awake

And find yourself lucid dreaming in reverberating walls

Of the creatively challenged, driven to search madly for

Heart, blood and spirit that elongates your light beam,

And makes deeper shadow than shade can lay claim to.

 

The cave at the end of the canyon bares a red neon,    

Conspires with a common theme song to overpower

The all night rave party that younger minds embrace

To fill you with a surge of greatness as you scatter your

Salt and spatter the empty heads of generations against

The motel walls of bad dreams waking in next door hell.



Out on culture canyon Blvd. you fight, lunge, overcome 

Fantasy to end the reverberating party mentality that  

You try 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.
