Under the Moon of a Taurus by Naomi C. Kenny
You can not coax your dreams to reveal themselves.
I’ve heard the stories.
I’ve been told to set the record straight,
For some have beloved all.
Be careful, for you have swollen lies.
Needing forgotten dreams to become centre stage,
For you to gain back the ability to sleep.
Those hours may drain, or bring you back to life,
Is nothing more than a selfish act of self-preservation.
A dream I had once,
Is sitting on my shoulders,
The curtains of your peripheral vision.
Pretending to not care,
The indifference is the keynote here.
I’m often informed that it is because I was born.
Under a light sun, an early moon.
With the birthmark of a Taurus
