Black and White

By: Farah Fehmi

I had a dream last night . . .
I had a dream last night . . .
You died!

I studied it for myself
Looked it up even
But couldn’t wrap my head around it
Couldn’t wrap my mind –

No worries 
Meet me in my eyes
What beautiful eyes
Black and white

It’s casual!
Don’t bring a suit
Black and white’s a bore

Wow what a nice venue!
Black and white decor

Never leave these eyes
Never leave these eyes
Ne-ne-ne-never leave

I finally found you
Why’d you leave
The party was bumpin’
Have I told you how much I love you?
You’re black and white
You’re (ir)resistible 
What did I do wrong?
Everything was perfect
Even the breeze!

Have I told you about my dream last night?
Well I had a dream last night
That you died!
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around it
I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around it
The entire dream was in black and white
YOU were wearing black and white
It was disgusting

I’m glad I found you
How did you get lost in my eyes?
The whole thing’s in black and white 
Well . . .
Not anymore
The entire venue’s rusting

The green’s contaminating everything
Even my eyes
No longer black and white
At least my folks are alive
But you aren’t 
You died!

In my dream you died?

In this dream you died?


Where’d you go.
