Exploding Windmills

So fragile in its equestrian gait

The tippy toe of stealth
Loves to tread so softly
Behind
In tennis shoes
With velvet claws

Dreamers are destroyed

By fact

These prison smiles

With tiles of teeth
Deride the childish fantasy
Bludgeon at unilluminated reality
Just to dangle their mechanical
Bag of tricks

Dreamers are destroyed

By fact

Stuff of nonsense

Imagery of bright eyes
Of painted books
And scribbled brush strokes
Pillow fairy tales
And windmills

Dreamers are destroyed

By fact

Sweet girly dresses
And boyish supermen
Plastic sunglasses broken
In the enthusiasm
Of slapping back in
To

The bright day too hot

To consider enchanting
Too fastidiously busy
To stop marketing
Disconsolate in its attitude
To pay attention to a giggle

Dreamers are destroyed

By fact
