Only fools
Wish on stars,
Bones, bells,
Pennies, candles,
Wishing wells.
Only fools
Will locked doors
Open,
Try to fix
The broken.

Only fools
See hope in cages,
In empty spaces,
On blank pages.
Only fools
Let dreams expand,
Feed them until
They’re out of hand.

Well-fed dreams
Are far too strong.
In level-heads
They don’t belong,
But in our cureless,
Foolish minds
They root, possess,
And thrive.
