The Guts of Shadows
Robert Vas Dias

Dream City

It is always never there except
when I’m there, I’m always
there when people look at me
as they pass me on the street
telling me of their adventures
across the river, urging me
to accompany them, but I’m not
there, I’m in another part of the city
where I’m looking at people
who remind me of people
I used to know and who aren’t
there any more, they could be
in another part of the city
looking for me.
