Concrete Dreams

I'm transitioning from house to hobo.

I’m transitioning from house to hobo.
I’ve already signed my lease.

I will be sleeping in that bush next to your car,
and your car starting will be my alarm clock.

I will be invisible but stand out.

I will live a lavish lifestyle,
created and renewed every day.

I will be the stranger you want to forget.

I will be the landmark for adventure.

I’m in the midst of all that is to come,
waiting to transition and transcend onto the next phase,
cautious of every step I take.

If I could only focus for this very second.
I’d know we’re all in the midst of dreaming and creating
our own very existence into reality.
