POEM: "Sex, Sleep, Eat, Drink, Dream"

Sex, Sleep, Eat, Drink, Dream

                                      They're fishing in the kitchen
                                     but they haven't caught up to me
                                     King Crimson (1995)

So long a portion of our lives
one turmoil over in a few seconds
a seed of an idea that keeps you up
till it's half-grown-over with bark
though nothing is forgotten faster
we still look forward to the smell
sure once I thought I'd had my fill
then I only wanted more of the same
sure Martha damn thing is just a dream
but it's the only one we can afford.
