In the dream I had been to space
And come back
With the nerdy college crush
And my cousin
And a kinda ugly dog
It looped
And looped
And looped
I had come back from space
And we were hanging out in the courtyard
And I had no recollection
About the mountains and craters and starlets we had met
They remembered with precision
They had notebooks
The media had arrived
We gave them tea
All the while I was the pretender
For I had no memory
And it looped
Into the crossroad durga puja
Red and white saris
Irritating women
A movie theater
Your fly is open
I had flown I had flown I had flown I had flown
I cried out into the hollow universe

So what if I didn’t have a notebook to prove it.
