Dreams And Potatoes

They put the fish in the oven.
They pull dreams out of the earth.
Here where the people of the well were lost,
others too disappear following bird tracks.
We grubbed for dreams and potatoes
and we plucked live fishes.
We ate many secrets and many more springs.
Until that weariness leaves us,
we will not mind the earth that has fled our eyes.
