You Must Have Dreamt It

I don’t do dreams

Life doesn’t happen like that

.

So I wrote a poem

About you making a snow angel

Drew a picture

Sent them to you

In the mountains

By text

.

By return

You sent a photograph

Of the snow angel

You had impressed

Upon the latest fall

Moments before

.

Coincidentally

.

This morning I span into a second sleep

And dreamt

Of you living with your friend

In her apartment

.

You messaged me as I woke

And then we spoke

As you carried what you could

Of the non-essential things

To that very flat

.

Coincidentally

.

I don’t do dreams

Life doesn’t happen like that
