Suspension of Disbelief

Your eyebrow falls
unfurrowed
mouth open slightly fixed
in the most barely visible
semblance of an exhale
and a modest microgrin
relaxed at the shoulder
chest puffed invisibly
mind scarcely searching
for fragile foreshadows
of future worries
pupils boldly dilated
with tears forming at eye edge
of indoctrinated hope
of the elusive utopia
of the dreamiest dream
gently plugged in
to the discography of humanity
piped in by purple cursive smoke
of your most basic dreams billowing
unfurled
and for a second
you’re not really sure
who you could turn out to be
after this
