A Big Event


Last night I dreamed

I took Audrey Hepburn to her prom

She was achingly lovely

I reunited with old friends

There was a bar

Somewhere I lost my car

Two friends drove me

They stayed and went in with me


Later, at the end of the evening

Audrey said she was bored

I had ignored her

She was going home with someone else

I would not see her again, ever


Oh –  at some point during the night

I was struck by something

That knocked out my front teeth

I tried but failed to put them back in my mouth

Then I made faces at passersby.
