What They Said

forever finding the silver key
to the golden door
the right glove not the left

the piano without the middle C

it seems that way in dreams
like there's always a dust storm
blowing away the days

or you've caught the wrong bus

or just,
the fare's too high.
so walk through the debris

around the dream corner
where the people start
painting their houses in

neon colors instead of bisque
taking the risk and hope
seems possible anyway

it's a town you've never seen

and when you wake up
you'll never remember
what they said
