The dreams at fifteen thousand feet

she entranced me
has to be
digitally enhanced
can’t possibly
look like that in
real time.

can anyone tell me
where the next real time
is coming from?
someone shouts,
‘after meal time’,

I’m on a diet.

in a previous episode
they showed
which I never watched because
I was shopping
which by the way is
like stopping bullets
in that it hurts
and probably kills
especially at the checkout tills

now where was I?

ah yes,
captured by her beauty
wanting to say it, but
she mutes me
and in one dream she
actually shoots me

but again it’s just my fantasy
alone on the island, then she
wades in and it all fades out
when I hear someone shout
‘after meal time’
