I dreamt I dreamt I begged 

you for us to watch 

The Office—it was 

so ominous inside, 

so insidious inside of me. 

When I awoke I was so still,

still thinking I was in limbo

still. The frogs, they only laughed

at me. Why do they?

Why do they laugh

as the dawn draws near?

All I knew was

all I needed was

for them to never 

stop—laughing at 

me living through them,

knowing what is real,

and I’m still alive.
