Oceans & Dreams

I had a dream that I was in an orchestra,
there was row after row of pianos and keyboards.
I was put in the back to play by myself.
I couldn’t figure out the right keys.
I sat in front of the piano trying to read the music.
Maybe I was not ready.
The conductor was angry.
I tried to put her in the back, and then realized,
that conductors belong up front.

I had a dream that I had a big blue boat,
with mermaids and seashells decorating the sides.
It smelled of salt water.
But it was parked on the street,
and I wasn’t sure where I was going.
