"a dream is a wish your heart makes"

To Annette 

“A dream is a wish your heart makes”
                                    Cinderella (1950)

hope died
in light

ten years ago


drift                 from                bodies


a wish

a dream

in vain
drunken slurs
                                    we judge

dye walls purple

spare tires
attached          tails of cars

                                    we judge

tales                 of         wishes
dreams unchanged

maps give directions
which way to heaven?

can you            walk                 there?

are you free?
do you smile with God?
is your pain gone?

are there trees in heaven?

can you climb mountains without falling off?


you better be careful
you won’t be able to dance any more

can you dance now?

can                   you                  dance?

can       you      dance?

I want to dance
