Real Life

she tells me this

is real life

as she slides the

drink across the bar,

and I take a sip

and tell her that

perception is reality

and that she,

along with the drink

in my hand,

are merely

figments of my

overactive imagination

and that I`m really

a 54 year old man

zoning out at his

office job while he

fondles himself through

the right pocket

of his Dockers khakis.
