The Man Whose Life Became a Delusion
Is sitting next to the Woman Whose Life Is Continuous
Absurdity in the empty movie theater.
On a blanket at the beach.
On the ferris wheel at the state fair.
In the famous aviary.
At Tiger Stadium during a rain delay.
In the emergency room.
By the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store.
In the holistic marriage counselor’s waiting room.
In the garden by the fountain by the tower by the sea.
passing the afternoons asleep in trees.
the million dollar dandelion.
Dead obsessions play speed chess
in the park.
A herd of uncontrollable impulses stampeding
over a cliff.
The immeasurable distance
between what you live and what you dream.
a cloud flying sideways.
There is proof.
I have photographs.
