You'll meet strange people in a test tube.

Girls in a living room laugh at a television
boys scream screamy things at their socks
like "joy joy joy" and "riding a donkey";
they went to find a place to sleep
and woke up inside what seemed like a mansion
a regular resting place for those who feel the need to sit
and wait as the rain sets.

The windows bled out into a space into green fields
spanning beyond the comprehension of man
the steps in a life that echo for eternity
forgetting this they slept in king-sized white beds
bags unpacked
all the things they'd taken with them down the road
taken out and placed in place.

They were advised not to stay long in this mansion
but to savor the time while they are there
and dream of most astonishing things
because when you leave part of you stays behind;
told to dream of most astonishing things
like wild olympian yellow jacket stings
on hands of marzipan caramel rings
because when you leave part of you stays behind
IN THIS MANSION!

I saw seven gods in my dream last night
I saw you and seven friends in a streetfight
I saw seven puppets on fourth street
they said I won't last long in the shadow
of your shadow.

It's raining
children play in the garden outside;
"do they know where they are?"
asked a voice from the inside.
"NO!" replied the mansion,
"they're just there,
and so are you
but we'll all figure out
where we are
one day."
