Miz Quickly’s Day 2: Break/Broke/Broken

And Another Thing Broken

Iguanas are dreaming
they’re alligators, and

night is broken
        by dreams,

the moon’s prowling
around street corners,

sniffing like a dog
at protesting stars,

and nobody’s sleeping –
        we’re all broken
        by dreams.

  1. fabulous! I love “the moon’s prowling
    around street corners,

    sniffing like a dog
    at protesting stars,” And I love the concept of being broken by dreams.

  5. I had an iguana once. Delicious. I’ve had gator, too, down in The Big Easy (on New Year’s Eve, no less!). Yumilicious, just like your poetry, Misky. Thanks.

      1. I think most dreams are just one’s subconscious relating stuff we’ve seen but haven’t ‘registered’. Odd though when some seem similar. But then too often the same news stories repeat themselves – even years apart – same themes.
