Late Night Show By Cherise Wyneken

Issue 5


In his Introduction of
“Dreams – a Way
to Listen to God,”
Morton Kelsey writes,
“The purpose of this book is
to show
Accurately and simply
How the ordinary person
Can begin to understand
The incredibly varied
And fascinating shows
That take place within our psyche
Each night.”

Collections of collages
Cross my picture screen
Whenever I go to sleep.

Kelsey says that God’s the speaker
In this production of our dreams.
But then again perhaps
It’s only as it seems.

It seems that someone
Found all my photo books
Then slipped the slides through the solution
And hung them up on hooks.

So in the dark room of my brain
I do a paste-up job.
I make a darn good artist!
Or is it really God?
