Dreams 2022

Dream 50
(2/14/2022)


I am
at work

sitting
at a test
bench

something
above me
distracts my
attention
from the circuit
boards

from the
equipment

something
hovering
just beyond
reach

a distorting
shimmer

like globs
of air
gamboling about
each other

all bordered
by shifting
rainbows
of temporary
definition

“what
did you do?”

Glen asks
as he walks
around the
corner

staring
at the aberration
over my
head

I start
to speak

then just
laugh
at the ridiculous
of the question

as if
there were any
capability
within my
very limited
abilities
to create
such an anomaly

Glen looks
angry
at first

then begins
to laugh
as well
