Regular Poem: Prophetic Dreams

1 Apr

It’s like
my subconscious gets on kicks,
too.

(Like
I get on this kick
where all I want to do
consciously
is watch tv shows about polygamy,
and then the next week
all I want to do
is exercise.)

Meanwhile,
my dreams
share common elements,
too.
Like
this cabin in the woods
that keeps showing up.
And I’m almost always
investigating murder mysteries.

But then
for a few weeks
I’ll have little points–
small details
or general premises–
flashing and strobing and pulsing
like
a porch light with a short
and these little points
actually happen in real life
a few days later.
Just little weird things that
I can’t remember right now
because I haven’t started a dream journal yet
like
everyone has been telling me to do.

Well anyway,
I bought a convertible
not too long ago,
and
it doesn’t take
ambiguously prophetic dreams
to foresee
that I will spend
my entire summer
sunburned.

    I like this idea of you solving murder mysteries. Those criminals wouldn’t stand a chance!

      Lol! My subconscious really thinks I should be a detective. However, I’m not sure I’ve ever actually solved any of the mysteries…
