Dreamy: Giving pleasure or contentment to the mind or senses. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary Definition)
Whoever defined the word dreamy
never spent a night in my head.
Or watched my dreams go reeling by
in dozens of tangled threads.
A frightening film festival
of scenes not conducive to rest.
Where every night I win the award
for best self-distressed.
The toddler who runs the projector
has attention deficit disorder
and the one in charge of designing the props
is an unrepentant hoarder.
It’s a messy place in there.
Nothing ‘dreamy’ about it.
Maybe one day I’ll have a ‘dreamy’ dream
but I seriously doubt it.
