inception

words turn
their gists twist
dictionary lists
fade into the mists of time
obscured by rhyme
with no reason
to the seasons
nothing to define the signs
inception changed the direction
it flipped the script
and with a few lines
the starting point was left behind
the beginning, its original meaning
seamlessly spinning
into a word
about dreaming
the bird has sung
the worm has dug
you’ve heard enough
the verse is stuck
inside your head
