the dream of a shopping cart
is your dream of a shoe
in the bottom of a lake
your dream of a book
slowly turning in a
toilet the dream of a
burning shopping cart
is the dream of a mountain
shedding its lint of
human beings the shopping
dream cart is a dream
of a forest of laundry
scattered in wind in the
wind of the shaking earth
