I had this dream
where you clogged
my toilet
while reading Kafka.

I don’t know how I knew it was you,
but, in the dream, I remember
looking down at the copy
of Die Verwandlung on the counter
and being both annoyed
that I now had to plunge the toilet,
and touched that you would
read Kafka in my bathroom.

I can’t imagine any positive analysis
for this dream, because I start with
“Oh, it means he’s willing to change!”
and end with
“Yeah, but he clogged my fucking toilet.”
