Dreaming Wide Awake

Should I have

my house with doors unlocked,

banks without security guards

and supermarkets you can walk in

without cameras that sleeplessly

watch over us;

streets free of patrol police cars

and armored vehicles that carry

either money or arrested men?

Could I talk

to everyone I meet, even a young child

or elders, a girl or a woman,

nobody thinking it would be for

malice or wickedness?

Should I have

this entire world free of assets and

liabilities, debts and credits, profit

and loss; having its accounts made

by other measures, just looking for

human happiness,

a common plain smile and

a permanent beauty’s ravishment?
