SMALL DREAM

ARCHITECT OF WORRY

sometimes the mind
deep in the night
designs skyscrapers of worry
reaching up into black heavens

being old we have learned now
to leave the drawing table
and stand back astonished
at our creativity of doom
the befriending of bedlam

and in dreams
we simply enjoy the show
before walking away
shaking our heads
laughing
