Oddly, I was reading one of my poems
And aggravated by it, filled with angst,
Annoyance, grumbling, distress,
Then, there was a line, “It’s only a poem.”
And, like that it was as if I woke up
From a dream.
I hope it has this effect on everyone who reads it.
My fairyland might be nightmares,
But I give the reader the satisfaction of it only being a dream.
