Park Place

this morning I awoke
in stillness
and i know
you must have been there
somewhere in the middle
of sleep
and consciousness
maybe a part of my dream
not quite ready
to take a final bow
because without thinking
i found my hand
touching myself
bringing myself to the edge
of a powerful
the kind that you
and pile up
like little plastic Monopoly houses
on Park Place
waiting for me to
come around
