Some change, a stick of gum, and this.

This? This is “Daydream.”

It’s made partly of memory

that leaks into consciousness.

It’s true!

Here, hold it for a minute.

You can see house;

if you turn it this way, it becomes dog, or horse;

place it under water- it becomes death;

lift it up to sunlight- it becomes running through fields.

I’m not careful, to be honest.

You can cut yourself on the edges.

But it’s an essential effect

to keep in your pocket,

for when you’re waiting in line

or find yourself on a beach.
