The Dream I Had Last Night.
I found an adventurous man who fell in love with me on the way to the lobby
after my twin Carolyn and I had gotten lost at 4 in the morning
back on the way from the spa.
He helped me find my way past the small chinese woman who was making clay slabs
which my Carolyn had refused to stop sticking her hands into
and who had given us directions which Carolyn ignored
and then she danced away where I couldn't find her.
The adventurous man helped me search for the white-towel clad twin of mine,
but I do not think she wanted to be found.
So instead he led me back down the lobby through all the hidden parts of the hotel
where chinese laborers made clay tiles and wove bed linens and cast suspicious glances at my foreign eyes,
as he explained that he could never leave the hotel.
I was going to leave, with or without Carolyn, and so we kissed
and kissed the tragic kisses of people who will never see each other again.
I walked out of the hotel alone.
