Verse

Squirrel red

Squirrels ring air red

cracking the morning, ears and bed-

cat is out again.

‘Dream dictionary’-

it’s right again. Sure enough,

it is a ‘sad death’.

Definitely that-

not about how I can’t get

myself to wakeup

just to remember

how he left with no goodbye

raising fortress walls,

just to remember

that I knew this would happen

even before drinks,

even before dinner,

and before us starting to kiss.

I knew this morning.

So, it must be the

squirrel, dying in screeches-

not me shot down dead.

fishing reasons from

the ‘Dream Dictionary’ to

get out of the nest.
