bad dream

last night i dreamed of lego blocks.
the pieces didn’t fit and it
confused me to see this
incongruousness in these tools
of useful distracted relaxation.

in my dream, i wondered why or how
with form factor specifications
that could happen. then i
took a closer look at the
bigger picture that is my life
and considered
it’s likely just the order of the day.

par for the course to have
an upsetting dream in otherwise
okay times, maybe a foreshadowing
of broken awkwardness on its way.
or just a quick reminder
to keep me grounded,
away from getting too happy,
too far out the way.
