I SOLVED MY DREAMS

I solved my dreams. Every one

Of my dreams is solved. What’s done

Lives on as a dream, and what’s to come

Will be a dream; know your dreams,

Because nothing really is. Everything seems.

Nothing makes sense until you make sense of dreams.

Gestalt Therapy Verbatim by Fritz Perls

Was a book hidden beneath the thick curls

Of youth in a New York City, 1960s, hippie, domain

When German philosophy, a warm rain,

Whispered across an empty, devastated, plain.

Yesterday a teenager, with everything to do,

Secretly found the secret: everything in a dream is you.

Describe your dream in the present tense

And say how the spiders are crawling

On you and it’s completely creeping you out.

The spiders are you. The spiders are the part

Of you which you’ve rejected. Touching

Is not something you do with others enough.

Solve your dream, and take in your hand the key

And feel it perfectly into the lock

And live yourself and read your book

And let others read it, and smile.

We haven’t seen you this relaxed in a while.

Now you can better understand me

And the insouciant grandeur

Of my haughty, yet melancholy, style—

Which you first experienced as a kind smile.

Later you found out I had another side

Which you felt was judging you. I blame

Those who blame. Because your dream is you,

Blame is not something you should ever do.

I secretly roll my eyes when people blame.

Dream a word. A word is never a name.

    Ah, but it is possible to discover the Word, which is a name, in a dream.

    (if it is given from Heaven)

    Here’s a challenge:

    Read the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew) then tell me you support Donald Trump. 😆,

      Gary, are you saying Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and the Democrat party is a fulfillment of the Bible????

        There’s a difference between human frailty and downright evil.
        Maybe I should have referenced the Revelation of John.😈

          Amen.

          Human frailty v. Downright Evil. Well doesn’t that just sum it all up then.

          Human frailty = Treason.

          Downright Evil = Peace, prosperity, wife is prettier than yours.

          Or any other way you’d like to argue.

          But everyone knows poetry has nothing to do with this. Poetry mends feelings. It doesn’t hurt them.

    Last night I dreamt Amy Klobuchar loved me:

    Did someone mention Orange Cheeto 45 Hitler Drumpf?
    Yikes.
    I better read Revelation to see where he comes in.

    A lying, dog-faced pony soldier
    Is a bad thing to be, but far worse
    Is a serial fondler of girls
    Surely that doth deserve the Lord’s curse!

      Gee, did he “grab them by the pussy” like Mad King Donald?

        Really, Gary? Some words have made you all upset? And haven’t you the faintest idea of context? He was saying that IF you have money, women will throw themselves at you, so that the “pussy” is right in front of your face. That’s what he said.He was NOT saying that he goes around “grabbing pussy.” But really, would you like to read the thoughts of all men and see what you find? Words, words, words, Gary. I find the actual documentation of Biden’s actual behavior far, far more damning. But then I’m not a lying, dog-faced, pony soldier.

          My point was that Trump has no class, no culture, no civility, no knowledge, is basically illiterate and has no basic decency. Calling people insulting names like an 8 year old school yard bully does not represent America very well. Am I wrong? Please enlighten me.

            Trump Derangement Syndrome is a serious issue in the USA.

            Instead of virtue signaling, just vote for Bernie or Buttigig or Hilary or whoever.
            Problem solved. ☺

    Lizzie’s blues (or, “What number wave feminism are we on again?”)

    She ran against all men,
    So men viewed her perhaps
    As black folk once viewed Wallace:
    George Curley tricked out with apps.

    The finale of ‘The Baby’
    Portrays methinks accurately
    Warren’s vision for the male sex,
    How she’d like them all to be:

    (My comments may be inexact,
    Incorrect—perhaps I did err—
    But one thing is definitely certain:
    Hawt was Ms. Anjanette Comer!)

    Top rail on bottom now

    You can watch the Aussie Open,
    You can even watch the Grammies—
    But I only want a channel tuned
    To the fight twixt TERFs and trannies.

    Well— and this too, on an infinite loop:
