I don't like waffles
but they come to me
in my sleep
dancing their waffle dance and singing their waffle songs
it terrifies me
I can't even eat pancakes anymore.

I'm not a breakfast person, I guess that's why I don't get it. I do get an image of what I'd guess to be a bad TV commercial of waffles singing and dancing, but figuring out their motivations or why they're frightening is difficult.

Thanks Paul, but it more or less has nothing to do with waffles. I think 'waffles' is just a fun word to say, and the thought of a giant fleet of singing and dancing waffles, all ominous and choreographed like those mad hallucinatory objects from Disney's Phantasia is quite terrifying.

But whatever the 'waffle' represents, in anyone's particular life, is that thing one dispises yet cannot escape. It lives on the inside of one's brain.

What do the pancakes represent? I suppose that's the much more pleasurable experience which you lose out on because it has an association (in this case breakfast) with the frightening thing. I can get it now, as I do like pancakes a lot more than waffles.

It is strange how much of our fear
comes from imagination
turns to limitation
barriers we grow to hold so dear

And yet we remain scared by illusion
Though deep in your mind
seek and you will find
the open door to your emancipation.

hmmm... I feel like having some waffles right now.
Neat lil poem, mellow.
