dream on

Dream On!

Clouds hang low today covering the ridge,
if I drive up there on my bike I can hide in 
a steel blue cloud and people will say:
where is he? Him! He is trying to find 
the milky way where postmen wear red 
uniforms and say good morning sir before
handing you the gas bill. 
Sigh, here back on earth the post has been 
privatized low status, casual work, they 
wear jeans and anorak and have no time for 
a chat, their route is long and a man with 
a timepiece follows them around.
When coming down from the ridge I will not 
carry tablets, stay silent drive home and 
make a cup of coffee.
