Variation, Same Theme

There’s little variation

In the recurring dreams

Same theme—madness

They’re not dreams


Peopled by same cast

Of characters which

Brought, fostered

Chaos, dysfunction—

All being heirs to a

Strain of this insanity—

How many baskets, buckets

Would it take to fill up bitter

Agony, hatred…carry it away—

I did not imagine

Everything that happened

Just because they don’t

Remember…doesn’t mean

I’m crazy
