WHEN YOU REALIZE YOU ARE WITHIN THE DREAM RIGHT NOW

when you realize that you are within the dream right now
when you look to the wooden rose on the bedroom stand
and realize about the wooden rose on the bedroom night stand
when your hands sink into the bed like your floating on the top
half of the hourglass
you’ll be on the bottom side of the hourglass
and then you’ll most likely break free of both sides of the hourglass

when you realize that you are within the dream right now
fixated on the piloting twisting blades of the fan gyrating
the hula girl bouncing around on your dashboard
her plastic cleavage subtle and underplayed
and you’re curious
you’re always curious and you begin to sandbox
you stop trying to steel building and you begin trying to sandbox
and there you are again
on the top half of the hourglass
you’ll be on the bottom side of the hourglass
and then you’ll most likely break free of both sides of the hourglass

or a marriage. or a personal personal conflict. you’ll break free of
your credit score. the high school pressures of your baseball dad.
you’ll break free of your chainsmoking mother.
of that story that you keep flipping back through with your licked finger.
when you realize that you are within the dream right now
when the punctuation marks become. some  what        irrelevant

when you become somewhat irrelevant
and maybe you float like wifi across a populated teenaged food court
and maybe you float like god
