new scene

taking steep steps

through shallow waters

i find my dignity


REM sleep

batting eyelashes

new scenes presiding


firm mattress flips outΒ the guy

transforms him into a flying man

with plot-ripe intentions

a future superhero

who lacerates all previously-written scripts

from now on

it’s high concept all the way

new scene:


he pulls you along through the marigolds

    I like it! Perfect description of dream reality. Funny, I also felt the need to use “ripe” in a hyphenated form. Very nice.
