Poem: A Study of Dream 

I read yesterday
That the Department of Difference
Has begun a study
In its new laboratory,
Funded by the Departments of Aging, Defense, and Soliloquy,
A Study of Dreams.

It seems they want to subdivide Dream
Into 360 Babylonian metaphors
And from that build a new kind of circle.
The funding is promised,
So now they just wait and dream
In the laboratory of Dream.
Forceps are on order.
Elsewhere, tulips bloom.
  • A poem by Alan Salant.
