Glass Eyes

Old dreams with time
rot, and if you
keep one at home, or,
worse, in-
side you, get help. There’s
too much
to lose; be careful
if someone kisses
you with a full mouth; they
might think they are doing
you a favor but it is
death to suck death
in. And if you find one
squashed under
your shoe, just
lock the whole thing, sole and all, behind
a soundproof glass.
Taxidermy, it’s the only way
to discourage certain dreamers from thinking up
plagues.
