I saw a dream in a broken hedge
my mother, father, and siblings
All set out to judge
their lives like dinner plates.
Harmonious and inept,
of feeling, except porcelain stricture.
Their goblets clanged, and gobs of thought
mushed through scraping intellects.
It was all so harried.
And I was there too being
eaten off of from behind
but when I broke
I was useless and so beautiful
with the others there as well.
