ben a while

Ben A. While

Average Citizen. Average Drone.

Wrote poetry in his sleep and built tractors during his waking hours.

He thought dreams were a release from his drudgery. His dreaming self thought the waking hours to be a nightmare.

Ben A. While watched a lot of TV. In his spare time. Between dreaming and work. Between working and dreams.

His poetry was profound. His sense of loss touching. His search for the self keen.

In his dreams.

He hated his boss. During those waking hours. His wife nagged and his children wanted more.

Ben A. While… it’s been a while…
