I walk around with a bug zapper
and a dreamcatcher
strapped to my back at all times
as if I was the human incarnation
of a drowsy
The dreamcatcher’s use is pretty obvious.
It catches daydreams before they can flit away,
decompose in between grasping fingers
too thick and unwieldly to hold smoke.
bug zapper is less obvious.
I wear that strapped to my back because
thoughts that care only for a shiny neon light
are not the ones I want to keep around.
