in my latest daydreams

I'm wearing a straw hat

and sunshine sublimes your skin

the summer breeze

stirs my hair towards you

we are caught in a current

fire gods undiminished

by the light of day

we still crackle and swirl

disembarking my train of thought

I arrive always on your platform

my mind's eye flickering back to you

in my latest daydreams

you finish your cigarette

and I don't walk away
