Dreams 2022

Dream 11
(1/10/2022)


I am
at work

sitting
in front
of a complicated
display screen

trying
to match
the figures

the characters

with the
paperwork

the electronic
circuit boards
at my side

every time
that I try
to make
an entry
the liquid
crystal magic
mocks me
in kaleidoscopic
fashion

the more
that I attempt
to focus

the more
the image
diffuses

refuses
to be
deciphered

frustrated
I stand

collect
an armful
of physical
evidence

and walk
away
in search of
some human
clarification

but not
a soul
can be seen
across
an endless expanse
of production
floor
