In Chicago

Michael Dennis Browne

Calling early, I wake you
from deep inside a dream;
It's weird, Dad, you say,

you just came into my room
with an alarm clock and a doll
and you were wearing dark glasses.

I used to think I could never be
as memorable to you
as my own vivid Dad to me,

but now there I am in Chicago,
in your dreams, and such
good things I am bringing you.
