The Dreamís Within Myself

 

I believe the Dreamís within myself

Itís the Law of my own true Being

The Untrampled Text of my Blood.

Youíll find your own words

Shining in your skull

Then youíll know why Robert Desnos

Through snowflakes to the gas chambers

At Buchenwald in March, 1944

Read the palms of naked men

Predicating good fortune & happiness.
