sweet dreams

i am usually in bed
 and
 asleep
 by 10 pm
its a good thing
 because
 toonman
 who comes to bed many hours later 
is a restless sleeper 

he has very active dreams
 by active
 i mean 
he talks
sometimes
very loudly
 sometimes
 very clearly 
other times 
in
'tongues' 
perhaps
 he's speaking a foreign language
 i for sure dont understand

 oh yeah
 i am awake
 for
his dreams
 his punches
his racing legs 
loud laughter

 other
 times
i wake
when
 he is clearly speaking
 either 
in argument
 or
giving
 directions
instructions

 i have noticed 
his dreams
 happen
around 2 am 
occasionally
 lasting up to an hour

really
i know this
 because
 i am
awake
for all of it 

mainly
 i try
 not to be
hit or kicked

 i recently woke him
 when he sat up
 'choking' a pillow 
he had
 no idea
 what he was doing

 amazingly
 after i woke him
he 
went
 right back to sleep

me
 not so much

 i have told him of his exploits
 he is always skeptical 
so
 i told him i would video tape him

 i took my phone to bed the other night
 awakening
to his loud laughter
 i got the video app ready
 of course 
because
 i was prepared
 he did nothing
 more
nothing
worth taping
 or
 i would have

 i guess
 he's a lot like the cats

when
 they
 are doing something
 i want to record
as soon as
i grab the phone
 they stop

 trust me
 i will get evidence
 sooner or later 
meanwhile 
i will continue to be prepared!

there's something dreamy about this photo
