Rooms I've Never Seen


Car alarms go off
in the darkness
of my dreams.
My mailbox collects
old letters, bills,
a jury duty summons
I'll never open.
My phone fills
with messages
from people
I don't know. 
I need a deeper,
uninterrupted sleep,
dreaming of places
I've never been,
waking in rooms
I've never seen.
