How about the ways that dreams
Demur to the reality that we live.
Dreams, the stuff of abstraction,
Giving way to the routine, the predictable.
Close your eyes, let the reels run,
Put to rest stasis, inactivity, all that is mundane.
Stay with the movie, the fantasy,
Right through the end credits before boredom returns.
How about the ways life conquers,
Defeating imagination, adventure, dreams.
