they warned me
of succulent dates
sparkling water which
would entice me away
from my drab reality
into the perfect mirage
and they tell me to stop dreaming
to renounce the life of illusion
does the magician not stupefy you?
does the night not hold capabilities?
you can only learn to fly
if your feet leave the ground
for as long as the mirage remains in view
dream, dream and dream more
how unfortunate are those
whose vision is blinkered by reality
