Thanks a lot Kristine for the comment you made on my piece "Manufactured Emotions" it made me smile :)
You are on the right path, it does have to do with looking at things the same way people have approach them for ages. But also it's got to do with the fact that our conceptions, thoughts and wishes are standard and traditional. For a while I've been deeply discombobulated by the fact that we are heavily inclined to wish what others have wished. For instance the issue of having a family, a car or a partner. It puzzles me that we are not original when it comes to our necessities, to put it that way .... that's was more less what I intended to convey ... not sure if I succeeded though. My writes tend to be a slightly not to say utterly personal.
The headgear designer was a sort of alleged metaphor to explain how we hanker after the same things.
Thanks for the comment, I was going for the gross out in the first quatrain.
"I don't need to blow bubbles when I snore"- I meant blood bubbles. I don't need to blow bubbles, I need to dream.
"Thread em' through the horned gate, not ivory" who is "them"?- The 'them' is my dreams. Bad dreams come through the ivory, good dreams are threaded through the horned gate. This ties back to Phobetor, one of on Oneiroi.
and also, thanks a lot for the comment on "the dry romance of waiting". you were spot on in your interpretation. and thanks for the little critiquing nitpicks, they should be very useful when i next edit the poem.
