DREAM           

 

 

Boy is asking for a box full of hurry

his arms angled up & his teeth

 

those goddamned white teeth of his

are turning red & when did my ear

 

make its way into his mouth & when

did his forehead start scrolling please

 

if both my ears are attached still

then who is Boy chewing on & whose

 

voice keeps echoing it’s time & Boy’s

mouth isn’t moving & Boy’s mouth isn’t

 

chewing & that’s not Boy’s mouth

I’ve been staring at not Boy’s face even
