As the misty curtains of sleep dissolve

And yield to some autumnal morning,

The dreams that passed before

Will stay with you as a kind of warning.


The remembrance of eternal nights of emptiness

Now haunts your days

The feel of death is in your soul

It cannot leave

It will always stay.


For those who've glimpsed some other world

Through dreams or visions or genocide

There still remains a lifetime's wait

Before the last and final ride.


G.S., '81
