Daydreamer (Poem 187)

Underneath the glamour,
When you gaze out the window,
Cigarette in hand,
Do you see the ordinary?
Or do you see your world
In spiraling candy colors--
A lollipop that dazzles the eye
Before it upsets the stomach?
Glass in hand, your lips
Slightly downturned, you
Revise and revive the stories. 
I shift my feet, and you turn
To me with a smile.
