Cat - Black

Poem - Sad Discharge

The poem “Sad Discharge” is the result of considering how worlds of dreams are manifested, and the inevitable outcome.


Sad Discharge

When a world dreams the next
three small wishes become one
each with the knowledge of the last
until the natal is surpassed

a first asks for a new day
demands existence to coalesce
against the tides of ignorance
combined with fears few admit

the second grasps rainbow tears
puts to sleep the tendencies
to look behind when progress asks
forward movement at long last

a final third belies the rest
for the progress thus attained
when the curtain falls to ground
the new is old in sad discharge.
