it's hard to ask
and harder to answer
the questions about everything
that come out of nothing
like my mind is a model
for the examination
possibly creation
and see here class,
this is the action and
here's the inevitable reaction.
not quite the daisy chain
we hoped it would be
like summer in the mountains
still clean in the high season
and that vacation I always
remember but never went on,
like the alps and aladdin
magic carpet one step ahead
of the unsurpassed rush
racing the booming white fall
and the avalanche is my favourite part
of the memory that never was
it's hard to remember
and harder to forget
the dream you haven't dreamt.
