=The Man Who Does Not Dream=

Sitting on the bed,
he takes out his teeth
and puts them in the goldfish bowl
on his nighttable.

He takes off his hair
and places it carefully
on a styrofoam head.

He sighs as he removes his feet
and stands them side by side
toes pointed towards
the open door.

He claps his hands and the lights
go out.

Lastly, he takes out his eyeballs
and puts them inside
the souvenir shot glasses
he bought at the train museum.

He lies back on the bed
pulls up the sheet
and crosses his arms.

Inside the shot glasses
the eyes glow faintly
with the day's lost light.
