Retirement

Saint Paul, 4 January 2006

When you dream you're dreaming
And you dream you've woken up
So you're no longer dreaming

I collapsed in a friend's dream
My heart seized at my retirement party
He couldn't console my family

I hope I see my friend before I retire
I'm not inviting him to my retirement
