Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


my dream was boring
until Tobey Maguire walked in.
the basketball team
was happy to see him,
but my friend & i
couldn’t remember his name.
Zach Galifiankis? i thought,
but that wasn’t it.
i remembered later,
at the restaurant where we worked
and we found out
he was helping
our friend the chef
with the menu.
then the dream
got boring again
as i spoke with my dcotor
on the phone
and he did not
say a thing.
