Wanted: Dreams

In the market
for some new dreams.
These are too worn
and tattered on the fringes,
much like trusty socks -
warm, comfortable -
for years.

Now,
cold and uncomfortable,
my toes poke out
through all the holes -
of these frayed dreams.

In the market
for some new dreams.
Zero-interest ,
low maintenance,
fully-refundable,
dreams.

Retrofitted ones
are low on my list
I can pay by hope,
broken dreams, and a few
tolerable nightmares.

In the market
for some new dreams.
Outgrown my last ones
as my goals outrun me.
Qualification: "Wash separately" -
dreams that bleed
into reality -
are not for me.
