My best fantasies

Are created on the elliptical

A time when there is only me

With earbuds serving

A dual purpose

Oxymoron, really

Because there is

Sensory deprivation

So I see my four dogs

Like silent Charlie Chaplins

Cavorting around the yard

But also

It is me and the music

Glorious, stereophonic,

Cacophonous music

Hiding the burn from the pedaling

Creating a borderland

Between the material world

And a waking dream

Existing, even with open eyes

It is a place where silence

The silence of reality

Is overshadowed by

The beat of fantasy

The real reality

Of my musical life
