DREAM GIRLS
(3/9/19)


they
crowd
my sleeping
moments

females
of every
form

mostly
clothed

sometimes
naked

all
seemingly wanting
to be
with me

our conversations
are much
like real life

disconnected

confusing

I don't
know
what they
need

unless
they are
touching
me

instead
of talking

again

so much
like real
life

so much
so
that I am
exhausted
with women
by the time
that daylight
arrives

sorry
ladies

if I seem
a bit
distant

uncommunicative

in those hours
when we are
followed
by shadows

I just
don't
have the energy
to relate
to you
around
the clock

we get
along
so much better
at night

when I am
asleep

alone
