The Ministry Of Dreams

who was in charge of the ministry of dreams
and was there really that much paperwork
we wondered caught in sudden gleams

unexplained except by light
by light, by candlewick or sun
the ministry of dreams ran on

and images were sorted as we slept
and scenes were filed while
other actors wept

things rolled on wheels
and small bells pealed
and someone paged

the revolving stage
or played for the opposing team
betrayed our secrets to

the ministry of dreams.
