I dreamt of
Electric horses
Burning across the sky
Over melting clocks
On midnight beats,
With sleeping angels
And broken demons
In ancient cafes and
Whiskey bars.

midnight_horses_400Over rivers of steel
And bitumen streets
And wells and silos
And neon signs;
Where the heart
Of the world
Beats deep in
The brown earth
Waiting for our
Better souls
To rise.

I dreamt of
Melting clocks
And dripping time
Over jazz bars
And music halls
And prisons
And laundromats,
Sleeping babies
And sad old men.

I dreamt of
Electric horses
Flying over
Desert bonfires
And country
And grandmothers
Gathered around
And lonely men
On oil rigs
In a bitter cold
Northern sea,
And shamans
And witch doctors
And bleached bones
On red Sahara sand.

I dreamt of love
And salvation
And redemption
And the transcendence
Of our better souls
In a time when
The earth was
Green again,
And we lived
In innocence
Like children.

I flew with
The dreams
Of the world,
While electric horses
Burned across the sky.
