Dilate

Inside

The furnace blasts phone
Ringing fluorescent and
Musty carpet threading
Caught in my boot heel.

Papers crunching over

Linoleum like October
Deadlines and tasks
Decapitated of purpose

(derailing elastic plans)

Outside

It is warm and rainy
Drops fall on
Everything and
Dilate

Softened
Chastened
Damp and split

Brain slips
And clicks
In place, eyes
Open
Grin

What a rip off.
I was expecting the next episode of dreamland, and all I get is a replacement show.
Suppose you are going to tell me to wait for the new season.

It's a Cheap Trick.
File a complaint with "The Dream Police".

I do believe this does not fall under crimial law, more of a civil matter, where monetary compensation will be sought.

La Sirena said...

Seek...but ye shall not find.

Were not playing hide and seek.
It's sue and collect

La Sirena said...

You don't need to sue. I'm always willing to put in my 2 cents.
