UNREALIZED CONVERSTATIONS
(10/11/19)


I was
wearing
a yellow
shirt

so I knew
that it
was a dream

I would never
put on
such an bright
abomination

lucidity
in these
sleeping moments
have led me
down
different paths
over the years

sex

power

physical
impossibilities

but as
I age
I look
for the more
subtle sublimities

I see
a guy
who worked
in the same building
as I
at my last
job

we are
outside
on a sunny day
in some
parking lot

I ask him
what our plans
are
for 2020

he looks
amused

begins
to speak

but before
I hear
his answer

I awake

alone

in the
dark

in the
silence

at least
I got closer
to talking
to someone
than I do
during my
waking hours

I may
just need
to update
my wardrobe
