Earned

When the voices grew faint
I opened the door
and followed them
down a long corridor
illuminated by music
both white bright and dim
outside through a meadow
I kept following them
to a mountain valley
where they wore the disguise
of water falling into a pool
full of truth and lies

to the famed windy beach
where in rhythm with the surf
they casually explained
just what all this is worth
and down a street where ugliness
is beauty misunderstood
they tried hard to convince me
that everything is good

back in my darkened room
I await their return
silently hoping their favor
has been earned
