Not So Reality

Not So Reality

Loving quiet time
Absent radio static
chatter free 
Driving through black skies
road opening before me
sight lighted by street lamps 
stretching vertically across this driven horizon

My mind drifts 
And I find myself fantasizing about 
A life lived through dreamt desires
Collecting the mail 
checks magically replacing bills

Folly of a reality 
so called reality
Who made it, so huge and intricately woven 
Having difficulty digesting 
Big ole beige pill 

This I wonder as I proceed through my undesired routine;
of not so fun work 
followed by anticipated work
and not vice versa

Wanna Alice a new pill
slide down a different rabbit hole
decapitating a job’s necessity 
paper scrapped
new blue printed
feeling into existence what I 
yearn, crave and desire

a place to write
as the children play in the adjoining room
audible laughter as I write poetry and prose
evoking imagery
in rooms client less
where the only problems I fix are my own
and debt is circumcised
where I’m perpetually full-termed pregnant with writing, 
days are more than halved with family time
folded in with soul mate time
then sprinkled in with friend time.

Feeling this into existence
each night before I overdose on life
and succumb to sleep

new found perfected existence
Where writing and creativity are vigorously occurring continuously,
I wait patiently with gratefulness
on the shores of this summonsed life
rolling toward, a smiling anxious me
