Dream Vacation

collar blue like the night sky,
like the pins pushed into the wall
marking destinations on a map
held more by their punctures
than ghostly strips of tape

your favorite travel destinations
to explore in your dreams

adventure that costs less
than the push pins you use
to hold your dreams together

pliable dreams
like the photos you rip from magazines
shaped by the ebb and flow of your desires
like the river carves
the red rock canyon
taped to your ceiling

shake the coin jar under your bed
to hear the sliding chime of metal
that will alchemize those magazine pages
into photos of your own
