sometimes dreams are the lady in red by Scot Young

sometimes dreams wake you up
mixing reality with the whatever

*stuck in this apartment parking lot
nothing familiar
not finding the exit
you came over the crest
of the drive
wrapped in the coat i bought

you when we were sixteen

you said nothing/smiled/
ran up and hugged me
hung on w/o
words until i woke up*

i tried to go back to sleep
return to the moment but
sometimes dreams are the lady
in the red dress leaning
against the bar

talking talking talking
with a viginia slim hanging
bouncing from her mouth
eyes half closed
tattoo on the back
of her neck you can no longer
read
and and and
sometimes even in dreams
the lady in red gets lucky
