Dreams That We'D Had - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Buried me up to the elbows of their
Sandcastles, lost children
Who had also lost their hearts
Into a zoetrope of stars as close as the sun,
And the dolphins leaping
Into a world where roses became extinct—
As she,
The finalist from all of the muses I have had:
The one I made love to some sixty times
Amidst the pornographic daydreams of my bed,
Eventually moved north of the nursery
Rhymes and rollercoasters
To be someplace
With her husband and her children
Forever—she killed my graveyards dead,
So I married another woman on the other side
Of the world,
My knees knocking off the heads of so many
The wishes of all my dreamy birthdays spilling
From the hollows of my instruments,
As I ran away to find someone other,
Fearing the dreams that we'd had.
