Dreamed 2009/5/29 by Chris Wayan; Dreamverse 45
for Guy Maddin and his neo-silent films
I work on Abyssia, an alternate world I'm building with a simple formula:
But it's slow work. Gold from recalcitrant ore...
When I scream, no one can hear.
I'm trapped in an early Hollywood film,
all silence and smoky sepia glare.
I'm brown. I live in a mining town,
in stone-age Sonora or Baja, below
As I tug an ore-cart up the hill
Rickety sepia gliders,
And that's exactly who they are:
our howling nuggets. Or miners, us!
But this is silent Hollywood.
ignorance leaves producers free
historic air-pirates. Ore-pirates. By
