dealing with disappointment

by June 28, 2020 0 comments

the edge of the world islands
where the ocean waterfalls
into a river below
our kingdom is there

I am looking through all the cupboards
just to see what is there

high
I worry
they are all judging me
or I am actually
talking out loud
doing something embarrassing
but not realizing it

the stuffed animals
walk around and talk
but that’s normal

wait!

I’m not high

I’m dreaming

does this mean
the rose thorn unicorns
the blue Great Dane
the horse-sized tabby cat
and the creepy giant wasp
aren’t real…

damn

editors note:

It would be nice if these lately everydays were dreams. Damn! (We welcome Brendan to our crazy congress of Contributing Poets with this submission. Read more of his madness on his new page – check it out.) – mh clay
