“Dreams” by Alexis Rhone Fancher

Self Portrait

Self Portrait

I left & he kept everything.
my books,
my underwear, my jewelry,
my dreams.
He boxed ‘em up w/ old LP’s
& my unfinished novel;
put everything in storage,
paid good money 4 years,
rather than give it back.

That’s how much he hated me.

Sorry, Charlie. I’ve done great
w/o my sordid past,
I only miss your cock
& my grandma rose’s cookbook,
secret ingredient addenda scrawled
in the margins,
that family recipe for potato kugel,
lost forever.

Sometimes I dream about it.

    very powerful
    sounds like someone still loves you
    in a f*^@ked up way

    How wild. Yuck. Sorry ’bout the recipe. I bet in some really odd way it will come back to You someday….

    Thank You and Namaste. 🙂

    Your usual undaunting courage.

    sad, funny and familiar … and to the point!
    obviously more dreams where they came from!

    Made me laugh and think how pettiness often backfires

    Ooh. The strength and power to always stay on your feet with or without good recipes and an old c@#*. Keep writing!!
