198 • Pillow talk

While two gunslingers trashed my guitar.

Yet, perverse as it seems,
I’d give forty such dreams
For the way that things actually are.

At first glance, this verbatim account suggests the heart-stopping hold any delicate possession exerts on us. At second glance, it appears impenetrably stupid.

  1. I’ve also been having weird dreams
    shot through with Wild West themes.
    Whatever the cause might be –
    viral? or dietary? –
    I wake half the street with my screams.
