Old Loves

Dreams take me places I can’t find on the map. They

Rev up during naps, and by bedtime, are at full throttle.

Last night I took a flight to a place of mystery where I

Happened to see an old room-mate from Fresno State.

I couldn’t wait to catch up, but he kept turning away

As though to say he preferred not to remember that we

Both dated Liza and that I had won. Before he disappeared

Into the setting sun, I wanted to tell him that he had won.

Laughing to myself here, loving the surprise ending, and always, your wordplay


Love the irony of who "won"😘
