poetry challenge day 24

in honor of the full moon … a dream poem.  


(i dreamed of you last night) 


i dreamed of you last night.  you never saw

me, under the moon far away under

a parking lot where the new hotel is

being built.    nor did you hear me call your

name.   but i saw you, your slouching height, your

salt & pepper hair curling from under

your hat.   your bright blue jacket that matches

your eyes.   i saw you smoke the cigarette

you are never without.    oh, my love,  my

darling, where are you now?  do you ever

think of me?  or what we shared together?

with whom do you now flirt?  who do you now

kiss?   my dreams don’t tell me.   you don’t see me.

only the moon knows.   only the moon tells.
