Tart Cherries

I dreamed
that you called
and asked me back
to your office
and I rejected you
thus rejecting myself
and my feelings...
to myself
the tart cherries
oozed out of my skin
leaving me flat
a turnover without filling
and I baked
right there on the sidewalk
people stepping
carefully
over me
so as not to get their shoes
sticky
like my clammy hand
when you called
in my dream...
