Always showed me the way
about what to expect next—
preparing me for school and
how to find a perfect mate,
warning me that girls are
very sensitive down there.
Now he appears in my dreams
with a beckoning index finger
from a land of the living dead
where he tells me now it’s easy
to walk on air and he can plan
a double date for us with lusty
angels who offer kisses that are
a guaranteed inspiration, worthy
of a Nobel. He will leave a key
under the mat in front of a gate
that has my name on it.
