In That Other Reality - Poem by Cretan Maineiac
In that other reality-
regardless of the slope or slant-
one cycles looking much like me
& Scales each hill w/out a pant;
his title states he made the grade
& lessers seek him to sign a form.
He managed his financial aid
stayed in school, endured the dorm;
commands particular stadium seating
while mantel sags w/ just rewards,
can smoke but doesn’t @ those meetings
presentable in jeans or cords;
flustered friends await his blessing,
the show can’t start ‘till he arrives,
a frightened child craves his caressing,
that reassurance he Provides.
In that other reality
the sun shines brightest on my street.
We all feel hear & plainly see
(each standing on our own true feat)
just how much worse it all could be.
