pills and alcohol

if.

if all the pills and alcohol

could wipe the slate clean;

then what would the night slumbered dream?

a provoked moon.

a late moon shines and watches the midnight shadows

dance within the footing trees below.

sought bare skin glows.

if all the pills and alcohol

could wipe the slate clean;

then whispers would waken the dream.

the Michigan snows jilted

and left the lakes in a scarcity.

the sun will set

and still burn off to the west of Pittsburgh.

if all the pills and alcohol

could wipe the slate clean;

then what would the night slumbered dream?

    I like to think about dreams and how they can change due to mood and the night effects. This includes how glasses of wine can have their effect, too. Hugs, Robin
