The Sandman Cometh

Apparently I need rescue by
Captain America or
Wonder Woman,
But they are
Super busy.

Instead I get Clam Man.

This is no job for
Steroid-jacked mollusks!
Or snapping, nipping

Clam Man is dejected
When I call for a do-over with
The Sandman.

    1. I had this exact same thought!

      I love this piece, Sir, but you’ve gotta work the actual word “dream” in there, somewhere. It’s as easy as calling it a “dream do-over” and finding a way to remove another word. 😉

        1. I like to write TO the prompt rather than use it literally. So often a prompt is something like “longing” or “happiness” or “loneliness”. That’s too blatant for poetry. We write ABOUT those things, but we shouldn’t have to use the actual word. In fact, the trick is to make the reader feel those things without ever using the actual word. You went inside the dream and worked your way out. Very cool approach!

  1. Ha ha ha. This is hilarious.

    I love that song … “Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream. Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen.”

    Tell me you’ve seen the movie Cry Baby. (So dang sexy.)

  2. He-he – and a real dream too!
    I love my dreams, preferring their madness to TV! Hate it when I wake when experiencing a really wonderful dream, and try as a might, I can never return to it.
