I Dreamed

For Porkchop

I dreamed about cats and a bear on a golf course
watching as tigers played through
Golf Balls were flung in every direction
and raised a hubbub in the zoo

I dreamed that I dreamed

Santa rode past in a sleigh on a train track
and reindeer with laser beam eyes
Something moved slowly inside of his gift sack
and I thought I heard muffled cries

I dreamed that I dreamed
When I awoke I was asleep

I walked down the street in the darkness of midnight
to the rhythmic pulse of fireflies
Someone then noticed me flexing my biceps
in a mirror set to emphasize

I dreamed that I dreamed
When I awoke I was asleep
My dream was about me
And all I do and all I see

I walked through a room of greeting card proxies
whose eyes followed me when I moved
A man rang a bell and I sculpted a picture
of songs in the key of blue

I dreamed that I dreamed
When I awoke I was asleep
My dream was about me
And all I do and all I see
