Dreams For Sale

There, out there
In the street corners
On the sidewalks
And hung, dangling
Are dreams!
Cute and adorable
Hot, yet fishy
Dazzling, but foxy

There, too many
In the exquisite malls
Draped on elegant idols
Bewitching every heart
Enticing dreams!
Intriguing and tantalizing
At an evitable bargain
But exorbitant!
Kept in the intersection
In allusive cases!

The hearts are
Indeed too humanly
Blowing hot and cold
Which to choose
What would suit?
Into the ever thickening
Dark sheepish times!

None to match
The extravagance
Of a deep simmering sleep
None that needy
For a day of white passion
None so becoming
To near a reality

Yet they beacon
With charismatic leads
Just as such, a mere
Figment of imagination!
