Musings before the dawn chorus

My body sleeps, yet still I wander

This city is bustling

horns honking in a jam

I wind down the window

to talk to the man

There's nowhere to go

it won't exist when I awaken

They carry on travelling

like I must be mistaken


Let's dress up all fancy

I'll raid a boutique store

I'm presented with ruins

This isn't what I came for

oh where's your finest?

it's here for me I say

That's where you're wrong

and I'm sent on my way


On a street from the matrix

she stands out in red

I call out behind her

so she turns her head

It's a special day tomorrow

I know, but I can't be there

and into the crowd she goes

both everywhere and nowhere


I'm sat in an old car

aunt and gran either side of me

we're on a large runway

and need to leave immediately

a plane is heading toward us

as scarey as it may seem

doesn't matter I repeat

it's only a dream
