A Reboot Too Far

I disappointed Michael J. Fox

last night in a dream

because I don’t miss Spin City more.


I just liked “I Try” on Spotify.

Doesn’t that count?


Macy Gray.


Yes.


I remember.


Now that I’m awake

I wonder how useful

my memory is.


Yesterday, I told an ex

I had changed too much.

Friends from back then

exist in a snowglobe now


or I do


someone does.


Michael J. Fox left Spin City in 2000,

Then Charlie Sheen took over.


Charlie wasn’t in my dream.
