I was asleep in a cold room.
She turns on the air conditioner
in the middle of the night
and hogs the blankets.
I dreamt of a unfamiliar house
pushed back onto a steep hill.
and then I got to see you.
We hugged and talked
only I cant recall about what.
You’ve been gone a while
and I had so much to tell you.
I started to remember
there was a old stereo
and while we spoke I recorded songs
onto a cassette by pressing both of the buttons,
just like the ones that littered the floorboard
of the Camaro when we were mere children.
Did we talk about old hardcore bands?
or what all are friends are doing?
Most of us are married with children.
Scientists may have proof of an afterlife.
maybe the proof is there in my dream.
my alarm clock pulls me out of one world
and into another, but which is more real?
I cherish your visits, and I want you to know
I have love beside me, and I wish you knew her.
I’ve told her all about you.
I tell everyone about you.
