– The Sandman [The Kindly Ones]
Because I really do love this poem. And, I’m tired of looking for it every time I want to read it! ❤
“I dreamed of kittens who were born to neutered puss,
Then dreamed about a body buried in the corn…
Be sure your sins will find you out.
You crippled you with pain and lies.
You’re hurting all the time; and elf
You built your prison cell yourself then schemed
And dreamed of open skies.
Princess! The river holds the trout,
So does the world take care of me.
And if you do not choose to see,
That what we are we choose to be.
It’s hard, but is all one to me.
The rule is cruel, but there’s no doubt—
I’ll dream tonight of storms at sea…
Be sure your sins will find you out.”
