Ephram Pratt Fails at interpreting his dreams - Jack e Lorts

Living in his dreams

was always a challenge,


the instant gratification

of the unreal,


of afternoons spent

in tracking


the mental undercurrents

of what never happens,


of too many markets

feeding into the sideshow,


reminiscent, somehow,

of his moral


and spiritual failings

brought on at youth.


He was troubled

by those around him,


harbingers of

what he didn't understand,


what he sought to know

but still remained


just outside the

cornerstone of understanding


he knew was there:

just below the surface,


indefinite as dust,

midnight seeking silence.
