I dream of your face before I’ve even seen it,
& I dream of greeting you before I even knew you existed.
I dream of art beyond my dreams
I dream of pieces that don’t yet exist
& I dream to show you, before I’ve even seen them myself.
I dream bigger than my pockets
Bigger than my opportunities
Bigger than my skill
Bigger than my reach
Bigger than that door that won’t open
But never too big to share with you.
I have ideas I can’t yet purchase
Ideas that can’t be easily packaged
But ideas can be bartered for with ideas,
& the ideas I have seem to fund each other.
I dream of art larger than my dreams
Art you still feel when you wake up
Art that awakens you to feeling
& art that is present, even when it’s not present.
I dream of being with you
Of sharing with you
Of experiencing with you
Of showing you.
I dream of you being there with me
& of me being there with you
But for now you’re here, & I’m here.
