Signs: Misread Sign


Day Dream Sign

Best not believe a word I say. This may be a lie. There may not have been a dream. It may have been real. I don’t know. Honestly, I can’t remember. You decide:

Misread Sign

In dream
Walking past a Chelsea park
I misread the signs

Please keep your Crip on a lease
Keep It off the grass
You face a penalty if;
Your Crip fouls the pavement

I told myself
To roll over
Lie Down
Get over it

I couldn’t sleep
I played dead
Got up for a treat
and sat

Read a treatise
On the charity model
And when my mistress
Came in started begging

Dreams are like that
