Here is the device I wish existed. I'm not sure if it is actually a technological one, but what else could it be? Anyway I look at it, it will be a very useful device:

*Dream-Catcher*

To catch my dreams
So I can see them
And remember
If I want to.

A Little More Time

We can travel on land.
We can travel on water.
We can travel in the air
and out of the atmosphere.
We still can’t travel
through the centuries.
Mr. Wells was ahead of
both his time and ours.

THE CHESHIRE CAT REVISITED
Once upon a time Alice traipsed about
a garden inside a looking glass where she
discovered herself, how it was possible to be
big or small, whatever would give you clout
that filled a page with black letters onto white
inside a book . . . a Cheshire cat reclined
smoking a hookah pipe as she opined
in clouds that spoke the sentences, all right

for good ol' Lewis Carroll. Nowadays
there's no need for imagination, to read a book
the publishers of the stuff they have a hook
into the market, a new approach that plays
the game of reading generations far ahead
of E-books, I-pods, all that hand held gear,
it's ink that flows up off the pad, forms clear
images of what you have written spread

across the air space so effortlessly
nothing to do except to go with the flow
dreaming the meanings visualizing so
there is no need to draw a picture, we
simply sit and watch the time pass by
whatever hits the surface the ink floats
because its programmed, I read the notes
that come along with package. Don't know why

but I’ll let you onto a secret, please don't tell
even though the texting disappears
and everything that's recorded tells my ears
what appears in a dark ectoplasm, a spell
that works every time. I put the box away
on a shelf in its original package as it was
when I bought the contraption. I'm at a loss
to say it, these days I read books a stack a day.

(Twitter-sized, as usual)

The ship's drones had cared for him since infancy,
but he visited the others, still in stasis, every day,
wishing they'd wake up.

I NEED A HEART
(c) 2012 - G. Smith
----------------------------------
Edison tinkered in his shop,
Until he saw the light.
Orville and Wilbur flew back and forth,
Until they got it right.
Henry Ford assembled a line,
That built the Model T.
I need someone to find a way,
To build a new heart for me.

'Cause;
I need a heart,
That can't be broken;
I need a heart,
That won't feel pain.
I need a heart,
That when I give it,
Won't be given away in vain.
