The dream voice says good night (a poem)

Today’s entry is a fragment from last night’s dreams…

Diagrams and Helvetica
light in turquoise and purple
a life story in stage shots and manga

The rent on this place must be obscene

I didn’t expect a mausoleum
at the end of the walkway
I thought we were just going home

The all-night movie was one of your favorites

The two of us making our way
through afternoon traffic
comic adventures ensue

Who fell asleep first—you or me?

The guests have already gathered
fame and flamboyance from wall to wall
and riverside to riverside

Now the voice will take us out…
