  • I like to sleep
    and while I sleep, I like to dream
    and those dreams are still filled
    with all of these things
    that shouldn’t be wanted anymore.

    The fast things
    shiny things
    pretty things
    and the soft things.
    All wanted, but none needed.

    Then one cement picnic table
    a few colors of chalk
    between the library and swing set
    kick me awake again.

    The bench reads:

    No kings
    No subjects
    No presidents
    No citizens
    Only corporations and slaves
