Improvisations

February 24, 2011 § 1 Comment

Last night I dreamt
we turned mannequins into real people
by making love to them
and sunlight burned
a hole on the back of your neck
but you didn’t really mind,
because if a song plays in the middle of an empty forest,
would it really matter if it was
jazz or country or electro-dance-punk-pop?
The world has no patience for stupid questions.

Self-esteem is a fragile thing,
yet we continue to make bouquets out of flowers
and mountains of molehills. You say to me,
always mountains—

but the problem with science
is that no one understands
how a scrap of wood can be an embrace
in the right light,
and how a pair of marbles
are as good as real eyes
when no one really bothers
to look
anymore
