Dream in Shades of Grey
September 12, 2001 They gather in the ruins of a world Women, men, children, some so old Hundreds and thousands of them come To wash themselves of greed and fear Hatred, the need to attack and harm What they don't understand in people. They bathe in Oriental fashion, squat Along a lake, dip buckets into water Pour on their heads waters that clear The sorrow of self, power, property Lust, lies, judgement, murder, war All manner of evil, cause and effect. They are naked without guilt or shame Waiting for me to sing them a song, But a long haired wild man, hair wild As Einstein's on a windy day, walks in. I say nothing, give in, let him sing A song unlike any I have ever heard- It is over all too soon- Two grotesque lions The words Ignorance and Pride Tattooed on their skin Are fighting at my feet- Alone in a desert and afraid, There's an explosion The earth begins to quake I run, clouds rise behind Thousands of papers are falling around me I grab one out of the air It reads, "This way out- forgiveness." Silence... The Voice is singing That mysterious song, I'm waking in the ruins of a world I remember.
