A Small Assortment of Modest Dreams

a poem

Big dreams get me in trouble
so I’m making the kind that could
almost come true. I want to be funny
enough that an unscrupulous hack
steals one of my jokes
and makes at least $40 off of it.
I wish I’d passed my online poetry class
with better than a B. I hope if someone
spots me on the street
and gets a hankering for my wallet
that it will be a gentle mugging
I can easily rebuff. The next time
the dryer breaks
maybe it could get fixed
in less than a week?
