The Merchant of Dreams

I sleep sitting up, nervously,
Wake up thinking about
The dreams, the vivid, exploratory dreams,
Dreaming I'm dreaming of a reality
I hadn't met when awake, when thinking of
Surrealism with a faint tint of realism dropping
Salvador Dali into an Edward Hopper nighthawks diner
Where Joan Didion is writing about the politics of
Deconstructing death, and
Eileen Myles creates a poem that gracefully
Flies out of Marfa, Texas, over
The Mexican border
