sixteen

the only in a squad of four
lounging by the pool
saw what we were looking for
but took me for a fool

magnetism drew us near
coyly made a case
anachronism’s feinted fear
while truth lay face to face

interrupted strangely then
by another dream
give me five but had a ten
plus one becomes sixteen

joined force against the evil one
let fly and made the chase
hunter, hunted on the run
we tread without a trace

introductions on the stair
drawn out from in the wall
the cube as black as sixteen’s hair
and not exactly small

convinced he’s more than binary
she listens to his tale
metamorphic finery
with heart beyond the pale

a flash of light and then he’s gone
we turn to find the source
the author of this heinous wrong
from that assassin force

but for our target it’s too late
we find him in disguise
in canine costume can’t escape
no matter how he tries

we find a quiet laundromat
with basins in the rear
a single patron calmly sat
nothing, we thought, to fear

with evil locked up in the back
we go out front to plan
and celebrate our clever knack
for catching such a man

her movements whisper how she feels
she twirls in close to say
I want to hear the dancing heels
on our wedding day

we fail to notice in our bliss
the patron sitting there
whose face unravels as we kiss
revealing hatred’s stare

then quicker than a blinking eye
our necks are in her snare
we perish there, sixteen and i
without a worldly care

surreal…..a dream poem, I gather….the video it conjures in my mind is disturbing, but I’m glad your writing again here on toastforbrekkie….missed you in the blogosphere

I couldn’t get the categories function to work, so I’m quite impressed you gathered this was from a dream. They’ve been rather vivid lately, so I turned to my poetry outlet. Inspiration is a fickle mistress, I’m afraid, but here’s hoping there’s more to come on brekkie. It’s good to see you on here too.
