(i was daydreaming about a far away
blurry oasis
in the middle of a desert of salt
so i didn’t hear her say)

“to love and be loved”


“that’s the secret to happiness”

what is
'to love and be delirious'
the secret to?


what if
no one will love you?

“someone will love you”


“someone out there”

someone out in the parking lot?

“no, someone out in the world”

the parking lot is part of the world
so this someone
might be in the parking lot

“yes, i suppose so”

(i shaded my eyes and squinted
but i couldn’t see much
in the glare of steel and glass)
