Platonic Dreams ?

Platonic Dreams ?

platonic dreams
from Teflon existences
can never usher forth
any viable reality
where validity
will stand
beyond the fleeting thought

and we cry to the heavens
concocted tunes of anguish
that we created
just to have something to cry about
but who is listening

the guest at your pity party
you call your life
gather around
to poke fun
at those who have a life
beyond the deluded textures
of make believe

gathering paper
making their lists
is your name on the guest roster
for next weekend’s episode
i though so

no i am not going
email me some pictures
or post them on FaceBook
like you normally do
all your dirty laundry
and let the world know
that Maury Povich
and Jerry Springer
don’t have a corner on the market
of foolishness

we elucidate our thoughts
and though the light
is as bright as it can be
the darkness prevails
what ails ya man
i don’t understand
the plan
that makes a man
take the route
you have taken
and again
and again

and i desire no explanation
for whatever exhilaration
you receive
in your conceptions
of deceptions
to your self
does not alter a damned thing
exception our perception
of you

by the way
how did you do in school
were you challenged ?
by those same
Platonic Dreams ?
