An opening that permits escape

imagination
face in shadow
offbeatjim
you imagined
you slapped me
& my cheek felt the pain
you imagined
I was going to fall
off my bike
and I’m still nursing
a bruise on my knee
you imagined
you & me
together
forever
but it hasn’t happened
though I do feel
the allure

you have imagined
so many things
concerning the two of us
that I feel
I need to say
stop it! stop it now!
get a hobby
or something
and keep me out
of your imagination
