Stockpile Imagery-2/8/14

Stockpile imagery

a rusted collection plate

thrown round a church

gathering prayers instead of money.

 

Stockpile imagery.

Close your eyes to reach out before you

and catch a dream,

before it collapses, concave, sinking into

a momentary

loss of memory. 

Stockpile imagery.

Newspaper clippings and pictures cut

sliced out of magazines

pictures of people, things, animals

that make you want to believe

that you can create anything at all-

if only you could dream it.

But catching hold of a dream,

before it slips unseen

through sleeping fingers

aint always as easy as it seems.

 

So concentrate.

Try your damnest to grab hold of your prays and your dreams,

because there is a stockpile of imagery to choose and cherish from.

 

Stockpile imagery

a rusted collection plate

thrown round a church

gathering prayers instead of money.
