Poem of the Day: “That Place” by Sierra July, Frequent Contributor


That Place
Sierra July

It’s the place where the barber
Gets his haircut
The place the dentist regrets
Gorging candy

The place where the dog earns
The bone and the steak
And has to walk you
At the end of the day

Where desires and dreams
Converge, all the same
Found at the bottom
Of a wishing well


Poet’s Note: This poem is based on crazy dreams and plays with the term “dream.” Something you aspire to do or be and the dreamy (or not so dreamy) places you visit in your sleep.
