The Endless Lover’s Dream

 

It only took 24 years

but eventually he got around to killing her

and leaving her

in someone else’s nightmare.

It was a justifiable homicide he defended himself

from someone else’s nightmare.

to screw and laugh and drink and smoke

until the night

from his endless lover’s dream

he heard a knock

on a door

from someone else’s nightmare.
